Middle East Crisis Live: Creation Of Palestinian State Is Only Way To Peace, EU Foreign Policy Chief Says

Only way to peace is Palestinian state, says EU foreign policy chiefMore now from the visit to Lebanon by Josep Borrell, the EU’s foreign policy chief, which comes amid wider diplomatic efforts to stop the conflict in Gaza spreading to elsewhere in the Middle East.

Speaking at a news conference held with the Lebanese prime minister, Najib Mikati, Borrell said he wanted to start a European-Arab initiative to revive a peace process, with the ultimate aim being a two-state solution.

“The only way is the creation of a Palestinian state,” he said, adding that the prospect of a state would offer a “horizon of hope” to the Palestinians.

He said he would also visit Saudi Arabia on Sunday to discuss steps to secure peace across the region.
