Mogherini reaffirms EU’s “two-state” solution



EU Foreign Policy Chief, Federica Mogherini, has re-emphasized the European Union’s solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. 

Mogherini said representatives from different countries discussed how the EU can work on facilitating the Middle East peace process. She noted that Israel’s settlement expansion, the ongoing violence in the West Bank, and the situation in Gaza are impeding progress on the issue.

The top European diplomat made the comments in Brussels a day after an international conference was held in Paris on the resumption of talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis. Neither of the two sides was represented at the conference.
