The European Union calls for the resumption of the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks after the Israeli elections last week, AP reported.
The EU statement says that it will work with the parties “in order to make progress toward a just and lasting peace based on a two-state solution.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party won the most seats in last Tuesday’s election. It is expected to form a new right-wing coalition in the coming weeks dominated by hardliners who oppose Palestinian independence.
During the campaign, Netanyahu talked about annexing West Bank settlements, a step that would likely kill any chance of a two-state solution.
The Trump administration is expected to present in the near future a peace plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but it is not known whether it supports the two-state solution.
