EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini stated that US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has a «very worrying potential impact,» in Brussels on Thursday. «President Trump's announcement on Jerusalem has a very worrying potential impact. It is a very fragile context, and the announcement has the potential to send us backwards to even darker times... Еще than the ones we are already living in,» said Mogherini. She noted that the EU believes that «the 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,» adding that the EU «will continue to respect the international consensus on Jerusalem until the final status of the Holy City is resolved through direct negotiations between the parties.» Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday in a live televised address from Washington D.C. He also began the process of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv. The decision caused an immediate outrage and fury from countries in the Islamic world. The status of the Holy City is a contentious issue in the Middle East peace process. Israel has always claimed Jerusalem as its capital while Palestinians demand that annexed East Jerusalem becomes the capital of a future Palestinian state.
