The delegation, which included head of the campaign Dr. Arafat Madi and six European lawmakers who visited Gaza lately, stressed during the meeting held at the parliament's premises the need for serious and active moves to end the siege and the tragic humanitarian situation in Gaza.

The delegation affirmed that the roots of Gaza crisis is not as much humanitarian as it is political and thus the financial and material aid given by the European Union will not end the problem, calling for political action to pressure Israel to end its blockade.

The delegation also emphasized the need for respecting the results of the last Palestinian elections and talking with all parties to find a way out of the crisis. The delegates also asked Buzek to visit the Gaza Strip.

Buzek promised to visit Gaza in the near future and follow up what took place during the meeting with Catherine Ashton, the high representative for EU foreign affairs.
