Recent steps taken by Palestinians and Israelis could aggravate the already tense situation on the ground and bring them further away from a negotiated solution. Both sides should refrain from taking actions which could raise obstacles to the rapid return to the negotiations.

Today's vote at the UN Security Council regarding the Middle East Peace Process underlines once again the urgency of resuming meaningful negotiations between the parties and the need for the international community to focus on concrete achievements to reach an agreement that ends all claims and fulfils the aspirations of both parties.

The European Union and its External Action Service played a significant role in 2014 in international efforts to solve major crises in Ukraine, Syria and Iraq, as well as an escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The EU also saw a change of leadership. For the EU's diplomatic service, this saw Federica Mogherini starting her mandate on November 1st as the Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice President of the Commission, building on the achievements of former High Representative Catherine Ashton. It has been an eventful and intense year for the EU's external action!

The attack in the Har Nof synagogue this morning killing at least 4 people can only harm any step forward towards peace.

It is an act of terror against worshipers at morning prayers and is condemnable by all means.

"Today's terrible acts of terror in Israel and the West Bank deserve strong condemnation. We express our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the deceased, and extend sincere wishes to the persons injured for their full and speedy recovery.

As highlighted to all interlocutors during the recent visit of the High Representative in the region, we are extremely worried by the current situation that - in the absence of political perspective - can further deteriorate. We urge political leaders to act responsibly and to work for a quick de-escalation of tensions."

Remarks by EU High Representative Federica Mogherini ahead of her meeting with Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu

"Thank you, Prime Minister. It's a pleasure for me to start from here. It's my first trip outside of the European Union and there's a reason for that: not only friendship that is there between Israel and the European Union, but also the fact that the new European leadership, the new Commission, has started this mandate, this five-year mandate, with the slogan of a new start. And it would be good to have a new start also in this part of our region.

"Today's terrorist attack in East Jerusalem is further painful evidence of the need to undertake serious efforts towards a sustainable peace agreement in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We express our heartfelt condolences to the victim's family. I expect all parties to act responsibly and show restraint, to not further inflame the already very tense situation. This is the only way to defeat the enemies of peace and guarantee security to all."
