The European Union’s foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell and UK's Prime Minister welcomed the US president’s so-called 'Deal of the century' on the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Iran Press/Europe:  High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said in a statement released on Tuesday 28 January. 

Borell claimed that the so-called plan proposed by the United States provides an opportunity to relaunch the efforts to resolve the conflict between the Israeli regime and the rightful people of Palestine.

The European Union will study and assess the proposals put forward," he added. "This will be done on the basis of the EU's established position and its firm and united commitment to a negotiated and viable two-state solution that takes into account the legitimate aspirations of both the Palestinians and the Israelis, respecting all relevant UN resolutions and internationally agreed parameters," he stressed.
