Brussels - The European Union’s top diplomat, Federica Mogherini, said on Tuesday that “any action that would undermine” peace efforts to create two separate states for the Israelis and the Palestinians “must absolutely be avoided”.

Mogherini was speaking alongside U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, on a visit to Brussels, as U.S. President Donald Trump is considering recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“A way must be found through negotiations to resolve the status of Jerusalem as the future capital of both states,” Mogherini said, stressing the EU’s support for unlocking meaningful peace talks.

She said the EU’s 28 foreign ministers will jointly discuss the matter with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Brussels next Monday, to be followed by a similar meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas early next year.

THE oval office occupant made a promise which he knew he could not keep but would be a political gain, and he did

I doubt the President of the United States, still without question the greatest most powerful nation on earth, is much if at all interested in anything the Unwanted Nobodies in New York have to say, still less the crowd from Everyone Unwanted in Brussels. By the way what was Ms. Mogherini doing in Brussels WI anyway?

It's understood that what's said on the campaign trail is not a "promise " as you put it . It's an ideal and commitment for the candidate to at least try to uphold . Clinton and bush made the same pledge that they'd move the embassy . But they never even tried . Trump on the othey hand is at least making a serious effort .

Even if he fails we win . The idea of moving the embassy is an symbolic . It shows the world how hypocritical they are . On the one hand the Palestinians liars claim oh all we want is a two state solution. But then they complain of Israel gets even part of Jerusalem. If Jerusalem is part of a two state solution what's wrong with west Jerusalem being israels capital . The mere fact that the president is calling those Palestinian animals out is huge

Real politik is not a partisan game to be played by vote-seeking macho, alpha-male wannabes. The tinderbox over there is not illusory. No one gained from the first Intifada...and that was touched off by Sharon's unnecessary visit to Har HaBeis.

this is making me love Trump even more, if you can believe it. If these descendants of Nazis who run the EU say one thing you should the opposite.

Jews are in Danger since the Israeli Government started the War against the Muslim world and now they get additional Fuel (Gasoline) from President Trump to increase the Fire.

WHAT “peace process?,” What is it going to take to finally make these ignormauses understand that there is no chance of a deal with the so called palis, they were given Gaza and turned it into a terror haven, no amount of land giveaways will satisfy these bloodthirsty savages who are only interested in doing away with the Jews and taking ALL of Israel, nothing less.

They say the sky is blue. They say pizza with mushroom and marshmallows makes a bad combo. They say drinking bleach can kill you.
