EU High Representative Federica Mogherini called on Israel, the Palestinians and the international community to redouble efforts to revive the Middle East Peace Process. Speaking at the Ministerial Conference on the Middle East Peace Process (MEPP) on Friday 3 June in Paris, Mogherini insisted that the proliferation of conflicts in the region made it more urgent than ever to solve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

“We in the European Union are convinced that there is a need for the regional actors and international community to come together and try to facilitate talks, serious talks between the parties on the two-state solution. We still don’t see any other options for peace than the two states,” she said, calling on the international community to recreate conditions for the peace process to restart.
Mogherini also underlined the importance of the work going on within the Quartet to finalise a report with a set of recommendations both for the two sides and for the international community, as it tries to facilitate the peace process.
EU foreign ministers will discuss the latest state of play at their next monthly meeting on 20 June, in Luxembourg, chaired by High Representative Mogherini. (EU Neighbourhood Info)
