Netanyahu: Most European Countries Will Follow US Precedent


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday expressed confidence that most European countries will follow the precedent set by the Trump administration’s policy changes on Yerushalayim.

“I believe that all or most of the European countries will move their embassies to Yerushalayim, recognize Yerushalayim as Israel’s capital, and engage robustly with us for security, prosperity and peace,” Netanyahu said in Brussels ahead of a meeting with all 28 foreign ministers of European Union (EU) member states.

The EU’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, reiterated the bloc’s policy of only recognizing the status of Yerushalayim following the outcome of direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

“The only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states with Jerusalem as the capital of both,” said Mogherini.

“We believe it is in Israel’s interest, especially its security interest, to find a sustainable and comprehensible solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This is why the European Union will increase its work…to relaunch the peace process, even if it seems [that these are] difficult times,” she said.

Before traveling to Brussels, Netanyahu met with French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday. The Israeli leader acknowledged that he and Macron don’t “agree on everything,” but are “working on it.” Macron had called America’s Yerushalayim policy changes “regrettable” and said the city’s status should be determined through negotiations.




  1. No European country, except some more or less neo-fascist governements in the former Soviet block, will move an embassy to Yerushalayim. Trump and the Swedish foreign minister Margot Wallström have both overestimated their importans. Wallström thought that all EU countries will follow her and recognise the palestinian state. None did. And Trump/Netanyahu lives in the same illusion when it comes to recognize Yerushalayim as te capitol of Israel.

    • Dos iz epes, you are clueless as usual. Is Cheh Republic a neo fascist government?! Actually it is the contemporary liberals who espouse a fascist ideology of the all powerful big gubmit trumping individual rights. So what you should have said is: neo fascist Europian Union states will continue propping up the “palestinians”, who were created as a joint venture by Soviet commies, Europian and American liberal-fascists.

      • And today you can check the news and see that the Cheh republc is NOT going to recognize Yerushalayim as the capitol of Israe. NO EU country is following Trump/Netanyahu! You are not only anonymus but also ignorant of European politics as mr Netanyahu.
