GAZA, -- Chairman of the popular committee against the siege and independent MP, Jamal Al-Khudari, urged the European Union, which congregates in a meeting scheduled for today, to  make an urgent resolution to end the siege Israel imposed on Gaza Strip more than three years ago.

He called on the EU in a press release on Monday to take practical steps to put pressure on Israel in order to end the blockade.

Khudari's comments were made only a few hours before the EU foreign ministers held a special meeting in Luxembourg to develop a joint proposal aimed at ending the siege on the densely populated Strip.

Spanish minister of foreign affairs, Miguel Angel Moratinos, announced earlier that the EU council of foreign ministers will try to prepare a joint proposal aimed at breaking the siege on Gaza and ensuring access to humanitarian aid and the transportation of goods and people.

On another note, Khudari welcomed the International Committee of the Red Cross' position on the siege on Gaza, which regards the siege a breach of international law and the four Geneva Conventions.
