EU pledges push for Palestinian capital in Jerusalem

The European Union’s top diplomat said Thursday the organization would push for a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine where the latter could also claim Jerusalem as its capital.

“The European Union has a clear and united position. We believe the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states and with Jerusalem as the capital of both,” EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini told a news conference.

Mogherini's statement comes as President Trump on Wednesday said the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and announced plans to move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.

His decision drew widespread criticism from European leaders.
