Foreign Minister Considers EU Membership
The freshly appointed Israeli Foreign Minister, Silvan Shalom, is considering Israel's EU credentials, reports Israeli daily, Ha’aretz.
"In principle, the minister thinks a possibility exists for Israel to join the EU, since Israel and Europe share similar economies and democratic values," said a spokesperson for Mr Shalom before adding, "it doesn't mean he is preparing the dossier for applying tomorrow".
MEP, Marco Pannella, of the Transnational Radical Party is said to be heading the campaign for Israeli membership and claimed on Tuesday that Israel does not exclude submitting an application for full membership during the term of this government.
