Austrian Parliament Condemns BDS

MEP Lukas Mandl, Chair of the Transatlantic Friends of Israel, said: „Austria’s partnership with Israel is a shining example for other European countries to follow. But we need to go even further and set a positive agenda with the Jewish state, both in Vienna and in Brussels. We must urgently hold an EU-Israel Association Council which inexplicably hasn’t been convened since 2012. What’s more, the Association Agreement facilitating free trade with Israel needs to be updated and deepened.”
