European support for Israel

The inauguration of the European Friends of Israel Organization took place last month. The organization will work to promote cooperation and friendship between Israel and the European Union.

Dimitri Dombret, director of EFI, said, "Our goal is to deepen and strengthen the relationship between the EU and Israel, both on a political and commercial level. In order to do this we will gather not only MEPs but also members of the national parliaments across Europe. We want to enlarge European support to Israel. The organization exists to improve Israel's image and help members if they need information about Israel. We will also network and organize missions of MEPs and national MPs and take them out to Israel."
