The European Union will not pass any official resolutions on US President Donald Trump’s peace plan for Israel and the Palestinian Arabs until “after Israeli elections,” the EU’s foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell said on Monday.

“We had an exchange of views about the Middle East peace process following the presentation of the US proposal,” Borrell stated after a meeting of the organization’s foreign ministers in Brussels, according to Haaretz.

“We briefly discussed how best to relaunch a political process that is acceptable to both parties and how best to defend the internationally agreed parameters, equal rights and international law,” he added.

Borell said that several foreign ministers had requested the issue to be added on the agenda of their March meeting “with a specific discussion and some resolutions.”

“We’ll do it. After Israeli elections,” he stated.

On Sunday, Haaretz reported that a group of EU member states, led by Luxembourg, was planning to put forward an initiative at Monday’s meeting to give joint EU recognition of a Palestinian state in response to the Trump plan.

    I think EU should but out of international affairs especial with countries that are not European countries. Israel can decide for themselves whether palastine gets recognised or not after all these people are on israli sovern soil. There has never a country on any map past or present a country called/ named palastine
