The European Union urges Israel to open all Gaza border crossings, the EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton said Friday, ahead of her planned three-day visit to the region.

"We stand ready to support the opening of the Gaza crossings for the traffic of goods to and from Gaza," Ashton said before departing for Israel. Referring to a recent cabinet decision to lift the ban on some of the products which Isrtael previously prohibited from entering the Strip, Ashton said the EU "welcomed the announcements made by Israel following the flotilla incident and are now awaiting their implementation."

"The European Union has been calling for an urgent and fundamental change of policy regarding the closure of Gaza," Ashton continued.
