EU congratulates Netanyahu, committed to relaunching peace process
The EU congratulated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his election victory Wednesday but added it was committed to relaunching the Middle East peace process which he appeared to repudiate during the campaign.
“The EU is committed to working with the incoming Israeli government on a mutually beneficial relationship as well as on the re-launch of the peace process,” EU foreign affairs head Federica Mogherini said in a statement.
During the election campaign, Netanyahu said he would not accept the establishment of a Palestinian state, a key part of the two-state solution backed by the EU and which he had accepted in 2009
