Brussels, Dec 7 (AFP) The European Union’s chief diplomat voiced “serious concern” today at US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

“The aspirations of both parties must be fulfilled and a way must be found through negotiations to resolve the status of Jerusalem as the future capital of both states,” said Federica Mogherini, referring to Israelis and Palestinians.

She added that the EU’s concern was based on Trump’s announcement “and the repercussions this may have on the prospect of peace”. (AFP)
