European Union warns Trump against recognising Jerusalem as Israeli capital

Agence France-Presse

"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.

"We believe that any action that would undermine these efforts must absolutely be avoided", Mogherini said in a joint media statement with Secretary of State Rex TillersonRex Wayne TillersonTillerson on reports of ouster: "It's laughable" Meet the Iran hawk who could be Trump's next secretary of State Tillerson under pressure after White House plan leaks MORE.

Earlier on Wednesday, the US president announced his decision - despite widespread opposition across the Middle East - to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Any decision by the U.S.to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital would be rife with political peril.

In an earlier telephone conversation with Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi on a possible U.S. announcement on the status of Jerusalem, Mogherini warned of the consequences such a decision would have on public opinion worldwide.

Fears that Trump might finally move on the sensitive issue and move the USA embassy to Jerusalem, effectively recognizing it as Israel's capital escalated last week.

The move may also strain relations with Turkey, a strong economic and military ally to the U.S. Turkey's president said his country could cut diplomatic ties with Israel if President Donald Trump goes through with the decision. It might have serious repercussions on public opinion in large parts of the world.

European Union diplomats have also responded with concern to Mr Trump's unwillingness to explicitly endorse a two-state solution in Israel-Palestine, which has for two decades been a cornerstone of global mediation efforts.

Jerusalem remains at the core of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - now occupied by Israel - might eventually serve as the capital of a future Palestinian state.
