EU's top diplomat warns Trump against changing Jerusalem's status

Tillerson flip-flopped on Iran deal

"What we truly need in these hard times is wisdom and to listen to the wise voices calling for peace and peaceful reactions", Mogherini said.

"We in Europe believe that the only perspective for peace and security for Israel and Palestine is the two state solution and this is not out of idealism but this is out of experience", Mogherini said during a joint press conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg following the first day of the NATO foreign ministers meeting.

"A way must be found through negotiations to resolve the status of Jerusalem as the future capital of both states so that the aspiration of both parties can be fulfilled", she added.

Late Monday, Mogherini warned about the possible consequences and "repercussions" which the decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital might trigger.

The European Union's top diplomat on Tuesday warned against "any action that would undermine" peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, saying the status of Jerusalem should be decided in talks between the two.

An official statement from the French government said that President Emmanuel Macron spoke by phone with President Trump, noting his "concern" over the possibility that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel. "It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said emphatically.

European Union diplomats have also responded with concern to Mr Trump's unwillingness to explicitly endorse a two-state solution in Israel-Palestine, which has for two decades been a cornerstone of global mediation efforts.

While the Israeli government considers Jerusalem the country's capital, the USA and the worldwide community at large recognize Tel Aviv as Israel's capital city.

The kingdom also reiterated its unwavering position on Jerusalem and its firm and lasting support for the Palestinian people in asserting their legitimate rights and establishing an independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital, it said. While the Jerusalem Embassy Act was passed in 1995, it has been waived every six months by U.S. presidents since then.
