European Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini has cancelled her visit to the apartheid "Israeli" entity, which was set to take place on Sunday, after Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to meet her.
"She was invited by the ‘American Jewish Committee' for their conference and not by "Israel"," an "Israeli" diplomatic official said, claiming that "Mogherini's positions are very hostile towards "Israel"."
A statement from Mogherini's office said she was traveling to Jordan this weekend and sought to add a stop in "Israel" to her trip. "We had looked into the possibility of expanding this visit to "Israel", where she was invited to speak at the American Jewish Committee. For agenda reasons, it turned out that this was not possible," the statement said.
"We believe that is important to talk, because there are many important issues in the region to discuss, including Iran. The HRVP is looking forward to returning to the region in the near future," Mogherini's office added.
Tension has increased between "Israel" and the European Union over two main issues: the Iran deal, and the US recognition of Occupied Al-Quds as the entity's ‘capital'.
