AFPS is concerned about Israel potential accession to OECD. On the 2nd of April 2010 a delegation from the “National Collective for a Just and Sustainable Peace between Palestinians and Israelis” met with Mr. Maurií¨s, the Director for Africa and Middle East at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. They expressed their concerns about Israel”s possible accession to OECD.
AFPS and other associations and unions, called for a demonstration in Paris on the 11th of November 2009 against Netanyahu”s visit to France. One of the demands for the demonstration was an immediate halt in the process to accept Israel as an OECD member. Further details in French on: http://www.france-palestine.org/article13115.html
