European Union diplomats on Monday urged the next Israeli government not to abandon the two-state solution as the goal of the Middle East peace process, as coalition talks in Israel continued.
"I think we could have a rough start but we need to move ahead with the peace process because the two-state solution road is narrowing and we can't take the luxury to wait," said the Czech Republic's Europe Minister Alexander Vondra ahead of a meeting with EU foreign ministers in Brussels.
...Sweden's foreign minister, Carl Bildt, said that the EU should push Netanyahu not to enter into a coalition which would call the two-state solution into question.
"I think it's very important that we send a strong signal that that is not going to be acceptable," he said.
EU officials also urged Israel to re-open border crossings into the Gaza Strip, with Bildt saying that "reconstruction without ending the siege is useless."
