EU President: Our Position on Al-Quds Stays the Same
Local Editor

European Union leaders rejected the contentious US decision to recognize al-Quds as ‘Israel's' "capital," saying the 28-member bloc's stance on the city remains "unchanged."

"... The EU position on [al-Quds] remains unchanged," President of the European Council Donald Tusk said in a message posted on his official Twitter account on Thursday.

The tweet came after EU leaders discussed US President Donald Trump's decision at a summit underway in the Belgian capital of Brussels.

On December 6, Trump sparked international outrage as he declared that Washington was recognizing al-Quds as the "capital" of the Zionist entity and that he had instructed his administration to begin the process of moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to the ancient city.

The dramatic shift in Washington's al-Quds policy drew fierce criticism from the international community, including Washington's own allies, while triggering demonstrations against the US and ‘Israel' worldwide.

Thursday's statement by the bloc's heads of state and government added fresh weight to the criticism of Trump's move.

According to media reports, French President Emanuel Macron lobbied for a sharper statement against Trump's declaration.

On December 7, EU foreign policy Chief Federica Mogherini voiced alarm at the US decision and said it could take the region "backwards to even darker times."

Mogherini also reaffirmed the position of the European Union on Tuesday, saying East al-Quds, which hosts the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, shall become the capital of a Palestinian state.
