EU Pressures Israel On Two-State Solution

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

In the first high-level talks in a decade between Israel and the EU, high on the EU agenda was pressuring Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid on how to implement a two-state peace treaty with the Palestinians. Lapid said that he welcomed the meeting but with Israel holding elections in less than a month, Lapid is seen as little more than a caretaker. Even if Lapid defeats former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, it is likely that any new government would be formed with hard-liners opposed to a Palestinian state.
