In a statement posted at the website of the British Liberal Democratic party, its 'shadow foreign secretary' Edward Davey states that "[the] belated decision to suspend the upgrading of the new EU-Israel co-operation agreement is very welcome."
Arguing in favour of suspending the negotiations, Liberal Democratic leader Nick Clegg had argued that "The continuing bombardment of Gaza is intolerable and self-defeating. It goes far beyond Israel's right to defend itself." He continued stating that "There is not a terrorist organisation in the world that has been bombed into submission. Innocent people are being killed and injured by a military operation that will only serve to further inflame extremism, and weaken the moderate Palestinian and Arab opinion which Israel's long term security depends on."
