The Union of European Federalists (UEF), chaired by Jo LEINEN MEP, notes that the current diplomatic efforts of the European Union to put an end to the Middle East crisis are ineffective.
The European Union should propose a peace plan which involves all countries from the Middle East. The UEF considers that a peaceful solution of the crisis would consist in proposing a federal project to overcome the inter-community clashes on a long-term basis The European Union is an example of how states which have fought against each other in several wars can become good partners.
As regards the European Convention, it should overcome the weakness of the EU in the fields of foreign, security and defence policy. It should transform the EU into a real political union based on a European Constitution, with a federal government and the necessary means to implement its policies.
