EU will not move Embassy to Jerusalem

On the possible move of the US embassy to Jerusalem:

” I have expressed myself on behalf of the European Union several times. I believe our position is exactly the same as the one of the Arab League, which is that of the international community: we stick to the resolutions of the UN Security Council,” – the EU top diplomat Federica Mogherini said.

“The European Union and its Member States will not move its embassies to Jerusalem and we would discourage any kind of decision that goes in that direction. On the overall file of the Middle East Peace Process, I would say we share exactly the same approach; that of a clear two-state solution, negotiations between the parties and a regional and an international framework that can accompany them towards that goal, in particular in the framework of the Arab Peace Initiative that we consider also as the most useful basis for advancing in this respect.”
