The US and Europe appear to be moving in different directions regarding the immediate future of the Mideast diplomatic process, with US President Barack Obama scaling back ambitions for a comprehensive deal while the Europeans continue talking in terms of an overarching agreement.
European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Monday in Brussels, on the eve of a visit Wednesday to Israel and the Palestinian Authority, that her visit just after the establishment of a new Israeli government was meant to send a message and had “political meaning.”
“The political meaning is that the EU as such is ready and willing to play a major role in relaunching the peace process on the basis of the two-state solution,” she said. “So my main message to the interlocutors there will be this: Count on the EU to work with our partners in the region and in the international community to support a restart of the peace process.”
