Spokesman for the European Union (EU) confirmed on Tuesday, January 28, that the EU will study and evaluate the proposals submitted by U.S. President Donald Trump on peace between Israelis and Palestinians, "on the basis of its strong stance on a viable and negotiated two-state solution."
High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, said in a statement on Tuesday evening, after Trump announced his purported "peace plan," that the EU reaffirms its readiness to work for the resumption of real negotiations to resolve all issues and achieve a just and lasting peace, according to the Italian Aki News Agency.
Borrell stressed the importance of respecting all relevant and internationally agreed on UN resolutions, considering that the U.S. initiative represents an opportunity to re-launch the efforts that everyone needs in pursuit of a negotiated and viable solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Borrell urged Palestinians and Israelis to show a true commitment to a two-state solution as the only realistic way to end the conflict.
