Shameful compromise on terrorism at EUROMED

European Union leaders and their mostly Muslim southern neighbours have reached last-minute agreement over a code of conduct on fighting terrorism at the end of summit which most Arab leaders did not attend. The compromise came when the EU dropped its insistence that the right to self-determination did not justifiy terrorism, and references to Israel's 1967 borders and the right to resist foreign occupation were omitted from the final document. However, the summit, which has been described by observers as lackluster, failed to agree on a common definition of terrorism.
