EU leaders reject Netanyahu's plea to back Trump on Jerusalem


Mogherini, however, said Jerusalem must be the capital "of both Israel and Palestine."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unsuccessfully urged the European Union on Monday to back the United States' new recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.


Netanyahu made the plea during the first official visit in 22 years of an Israeli premier to the EU's Belgium headquarters -- and nearly a week after U.S. President Donald Trump moved to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"I believe that all, or most, of the European countries will move their embassies to Jerusalem, recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and engage robustly with us for security, prosperity and peace," Netanyahu said in a joint appearance with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

Mogherini, however, said Jerusalem must be the capital "of both Israel and Palestine."
