The European Union’s position is extremely clear. We have expressed it in these days in a united manner – from my side, from the foreign ministers of the 28 Member States came a very clear message, including to Prime Minister Netanyahu on Monday.
I think it was heard in a very loud and clear manner, not only in the Arab world, not only with our Palestinian friends, but also in Israel, in Washington and the international community at large. This morning I received Foreign Minister of Indonesia Ms Retno Marsudi – the largest Muslim country in the world – who came here to discuss about Jerusalem, appreciating the position of the EU. The world knows where the EU stands on Jerusalem – the capital of two states along 1967 lines.
The European Union’s position is clear, determined and very well known. We are now working on giving this a perspective. Heads of State and Governments will decide whether they want to include this position in their formal statement or not but this is and will stay the consolidated position of the EU in any case.
