Federica Mogherini, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, spoke today by phone with the Jordanian Foreign Minister Safadi on a possible US announcement on the status of Jerusalem this week.
Since early this year, the European Union was clear in its expectation that there can be reflection on the consequences that any decision or unilateral action affecting Jerusalem’s status could have. It might have serious repercussions on public opinion in large parts of the world. The focus should therefore remain on the efforts to restart the peace process and avoiding any action that would undermine such efforts. The EU will continue to engage with both parties and its international and regional partners, including within the Quartet, to support a resumption of a meaningful peace process.
