Еще chance» during a joint press conference with EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini at EU headquarters in Brussels, Monday. Netanyahu's visit to the EU is the first official visit by an Israeli Prime Minister to the EU in 22 years. «Israel has extended its hand to peace to our Palestinian neighbours for 100 years,» stated Netanyahu, adding that «what president Trump has done is put facts squarely on the table.» The Israel leader claimed that European countries will eventually follow US President Donald Trump's decision, and assured that «all or most of the European countries will move their embassies to Jerusalem.» On her side, EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini explained the EU's position in this matter, saying that «only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states, with Jerusalem as the capital of both; the state of Israel and the state of Palestine, along the '67 line. This is our consolidated position.»
