Jerusalem: It’s the recognition of 3,000 years of history, says Israeli AmbassadorThursday, 07 December 2017 20:10
United Nations resolutions on the Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, do not change anything, according to the Israeli representative. “The decisions of international organizations cannot change reality,” she said.
The ambassador called on the European Union to follow the U.S. example. “The Palestinians will then understand that they have no other choice but to return to the negotiating table to achieve peace,” she said.
In answer to questions from Bel-RTL and La Première, Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders called the U.S. decision “regrettable” and contrary to international law.
“It opens up the risk of a conflagration in the region,” he said. “Perhaps an appeal for calm needs to be made now. I hope we’ll see a number of actors relaunch the dialogue; and the European Union probably has a role to play by showing that we are capable of discussing both with Israel and with Palestine.”
For the head of Belgian diplomacy, that dialogue must be resumed in the appropriate forum : the United Nations.
