EU Warns US against  Undermining Mideast Peace

JERUSALEM — The European Union’s foreign policy chief is subtly warning the United States against moves that would undermine Mideast peace.
Federica Mogherini is meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Brussels. She’s calling for a “meaningful peace process” leading to a two-state solution for Israelis and Palestinians.
Mogherini says the EU believes that “any action that would undermine this effort must be absolutely avoided.” She appeared to be referring to President Donald Trump’s deliberations about moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to contested Jerusalem.
Mogherini says the EU will discuss the peace issue with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday and early next year with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
The chief of the Arab League is warning the United States not to take any measures that would change Jerusalem’s current legal and political status.
