By its seriousness, the Arab-Israeli conflict is the one that most affects the Union for the Mediterranean.  Following an armed conflict between Israel and Gaza from December 2008 to January 2009, the Arab group refused to meet at a high level, thus blocking all ministerial meetings scheduled for the first half of 2009.  The refusal of Arab foreign ministers to meet with their Israeli counterpart Avigdor Lieberman also led to the cancellation of two ministerial meetings on foreign affairs in November 2009 and June 2010.  The sectoral meetings of the Union for the Mediterranean have also been affected by Israel`s treatment of the populations affected by the Israeli population under its control. At the Euro-Mediterranean Water Ministerial Meeting in Barcelona in April 2010, the water strategy was not approved, as it was a terminology disagreement over whether the territories claimed by Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese as “occupied territories” or “occupied territories” should be described as “occupied territories” or “under occupation”.  Two other ministerial meetings on higher education and agriculture had to be cancelled due to the same disparity.  On the other hand, budgetary and social agreements such as those between children and parents are generally unenforceable on the basis of public order.
For example, in the English case Balfour v. Balfour, a man agreed to give 30 dollars a month to his wife while he was not home, but the court refused to enforce the agreement when the husband stopped paying. On the other hand, in Merritt/Merritt, the Tribunal imposed an agreement between an insane couple, because the circumstances suggested that their agreement should have legal consequences. On 22 February 2017, the Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UpM) and the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) signed a multi-year funding agreement of 6.5 million euros to support the UfM`s activities for more sustainable and inclusive development in the region.  In trade agreements, it is considered that the parties intend to be legally bound, unless the parties explicitly state otherwise, as in a contractual document. For example, in the Rose- Frank Co/JR Crompton-Bros Ltd case, an agreement between two commercial parties was not reached because the document stipulated an “honour clause”: “This is not a commercial or legal agreement, but only a declaration of intent by the parties.”
