The Head of the European Union Delegation to Egypt, Ambassador Christian Berger affirmed the European Union’s position in support of the International Court of Justice’s decision against Israel, pointing out to what was confirmed by the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, as well as the European Commission, regarding supporting the court’s decisions. 

He pointed out that there are some points that are being discussed in Brussels regarding the implementation of the court’s decisions, in addition to discussing sending humanitarian aid to Gaza. 

Ambassador Berger stressed in a press conference today, on the sidelines of his tour in Alexandria, accompanied by a number of ambassadors of European countries, that the European Commission will continue to support UNRWA as the Palestinians need it, emphasizing the continuation of investigations into Israeli allegations of accusing a number of UNRWA employees of participating in the incidenta of October 7th.

Berger confirmed that the European Union supports Egypt's position regarding refusing to displace Palestinians from Gaza, and "we call with Egypt for a ceasefire and to work on the necessity of bringing the necessary humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip."


Berger said that the wars and conditions in Gaza and Sudan affect joint cooperation programs with Egypt, but a number of commissioners will be in Egypt during the coming period, to lead these programs and push them forward.
