EU foreign policy chief cancels visit to Israel


European Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini has canceled an official visit to Israel, which was scheduled for Sunday, Israeli media reported Friday, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency. 

 

According to an Israeli channel, Mogherini was scheduled to participate in an international conference organized by the Jewish-American Committee (a pro-Israeli non-governmental organization) next Monday in Jerusalem. 

 

“Mogherini canceled her trip to Israel after the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamín Netanyahu declined to meet her,” the channel said. 

 

It said Mogherini had requested Netanyahu's office to arrange an appointment with him, but the latter did not respond. 

 

Channel Two quoted an Israeli political source as saying that Netanyahu had refused to meet Mogherini because of his “full agenda”. 

 

The source said "Netanyahu in fact canceled his meeting with the foreign minister of the European Union because of her very hostile position on Israel". 

 

Mogherini had rejected the U.S. move to transfer its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and warned of consequences the embassy shifted.
