Israel intenta impedir el ingreso de la Autoridad Palestina a Interpol para que no filtre información a terroristas

Agencia AJN.- Israel is hoping to stop an attempt by the Palestinian Authority to join the International Criminal Police Organization, Interpol, at the 85th general assembly next week.

Israeli diplomats are extensively lobbying Interpol members to reject the Palestinian bid, which will be considered. The Palestinian Authority issued a formal request to join Interpol in August 2015.

On a visit to Russia on Tuesday, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan met with the Moscow Chief of Police and urged the Russian government to vote against the Palestinian bid. Erdan contended that Palestinian membership would turn Interpol into a “political body” driven by external considerations.

Speaking with The Jerusalem Post, MFA Spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said that Israel will continue to block Palestinian attempts to join international bodies, however, he would not comment directly on the current Interpol effort.

“The Palestinians continue with their multilateral strategy, they seek recognition through international organizations instead of direct talks with Israeli this is something is cannot except,” he said, “We work with with all relevant international organizations including Interpol in order to make sure it doesn’t happen.”

A diplomatic official said that there are concerns that Palestinian police will leak sensitive information to terrorist groups.

Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on an operational level the Israel Police have a good relationship with the Palestinian police.

“Israeli national police work in coordination in with Palestinian police in joint cooperation for years on issues such as traffic, drugs, and road accidents,” Rosenfeld said, adding that membership to Interpol entailed diplomatic considerations separate from the Israel police’s positive relationship with the Palestinian police.

Turkey is supporting the Palestinian bid, which requires a two-thirds vote to be approved.

According to report in Walla! News Israel is hoping to convince Russia to vote against the Palestinian bid as Kosovo, a country which Russia does not recognize, is also seeking membership along with the PA.

190 Interpol member countries will attend the Interpol general assembly in Bali, Indonesia from November 7-10.
