German FM Warns of Growing Frustration with «Israel’s» Actions in Europe
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel has met the "Israeli" entity's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in al-Quds [Jerusalem] to discuss a number of pressing issues, including the future of the so-called "Israeli"-Palestinian peace talks.
Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel of Germany has stated that several members of the "Israeli" cabinet were "explicitly against the 'two-state solution'" to the "Israeli"-Palestinian conflict.
"These - at best mixed - signals do not go unnoticed in Europe, where there is clearly growing frustration with Israel's actions," he said.
Gabriel also pointed to his own Social Democratic Party, where some remain at odds over what they describe as an "unfair" treatment of the Palestinians.
"It is increasingly difficult for people like me to explain to them the reasons why our support for Israel must persist," Gabriel said, referring to the ongoing illegal "Israeli" settlement construction in occupied territories in the West Bank which continues to spark violence in the area.
Gabriel made the remarks during a press conference after his negotiations with "Israeli" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in al-Quds on Wednesday. Apart from the so-called two-state solution, the two discussed a spate of other pressing issues, including the one related to the Iran nuclear deal.
The EU has repeatedly called for the so-called two-state solution as many EU members, including Germany, remain concerned over US President Donald Trump's recognition of al-Quds as the "Israeli" entity's so-called capital and the relocation of the US Embassy there.
