ONLY Norway has reached out to the new PA-gov., NOT the EU. So far the EU is sticking firmly to its 3 demands on the PA-unity gov.; to first and foremostly renounce violence against Israel, before the relations can be normalized. I find it rather odd that Norway made this move, since she has a special status in the EU (a NON-member) and therefore at least should have shown some respect for the EU-standpoint and some coherent political direction with the EU in this issue and NOT to act on her own and to disregard the EU altogether. Then again; it is very typical Scandinavian to decide for oneself and personally I think that this is exactly what Norway did...without any consideration for the EU or anybody else.
