The European Union: We will not recognize any changes to the 1967 borders, and settlements are an obstacle to peace

The spokesperson for the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Peter Stano said that the settlements are illegal under international law and constitute a major obstacle to achieving a two-state solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace between the two parties.

In a statement issued on Friday, he affirmed the European Union's firm and clear position that it will not recognize any changes to the pre-1967 borders, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed upon by the two parties.

He called on the government of Israel to retract the steps of submitting a tender to build new settlement units, which completely contradict the efforts made to ease tensions and ensure calm, calling for a halt to settlement construction, and focusing on promoting meaningful re-engagement between the two parties, strengthening confidence-building measures, and improving the living conditions of ordinary people. which is badly needed.

Stano stressed that the European Union will continue to play its role in supporting steps towards sustainable peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
