The European Union criticized Tuesday Israel's decision to freeze Palestinian Authority tax revenues in retaliation for joining the International Criminal Court and called on both sides to avoid steps that could undermine peace efforts.
The tax freeze "runs counter to Israel's obligations," agreed in 1994 following the Oslo peace accords, European Union foreign affairs head Federica Mogherini was quoted as saying.
"An effective Palestinian Authority, committed to non-violence and a peaceful resolution of the conflict, is a key element for a two-state solution," Mogherini said in a statement.
