Jerusalem should be capital of two states: top EU diplomat

EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini speaks on a visit to a UN-run Bahrain boys school sheltering displaced Palestinian families, on November 8, 2014 in Gaza CityThe European Union’s top diplomat Federica Mogherini said on Saturday that Jerusalem “should be the capital of two states”, as tensions gripped the holy city hit by Israeli-Palestinian violence. “I think Jerusalem can be and should be the capital of two states,” Mogherini told reporters in the Israeli-occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, touching on a sensitive issue that has blocked peace efforts for decades. Her appeal, at a joint news conference with Palestinian prime minister Rami Hamdallah, came hours after the killing of an Arab-Israeli by police fanned tensions between Israel and the Palestinians. The shooting in northern Israel came after another night of clashes in east Jerusalem between youths hurling stones and firecrackers at police, who retaliated with rubber bullets, stun grenades and tear gas.
