Finland: Regime opposes calls for EU trade sanctions on Israel

“Finland wants the EU to continue trading with Israel despite growing calls for economic sanctions in view of the worsening humanitarian toll from Israel’s military operations in Gaza, its trade minister said Thursday. … The comments come after EU foreign ministers on Monday discussed potential steps against Israel should it fail to comply with a ruling by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) obliging it to immediately cease its current offensive in Rafah in southern Gaza.” (05/30/24)
