      Min. Shalom Questions EU's Balance in Negotiations


      Knesset Minister Silvan Shalom (Likud - Yisrael Beiteinu) addressed the European Union's decision to boycott Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. "Unfortunately, the European Union has once again demonstrated how much it is detached," he stated. He questioned whether the EU could be considered a "balanced partner in negotiations with the Palestinian Authority" after taking such a stance. MK Shalom serves as Minister for Regional Development, Minister for the Development of the Negev and Galilee and Minister of Energy and Water.
