Remarks by EU High Representative Catherine Ashton following the Foreign Affairs Council
Finally, over lunch we discussed the Middle East Peace Process. As you know, we have long said that we believe in a two state solution, that we want to press forward and to see the development of an internationally supported framework so that we can see negotiations between the parties.
We are working closely with our partners and in the region to create the conditions for establishing such a framework.
And as we have said many times, this has to be a solution that addresses both the Palestinian aspirations for statehood and sovereignty and the Israeli concerns for security.
