The EU's foreign policy chief on Thursday reiterated the bloc's view that Jerusalem is the "capital of two states" based on the 1967 borders.
Speaking to journalists ahead of the EU leaders' summit in Brussels, Frederica Mogherini said: "The world knows where the EU stands on Jerusalem.
"Capital of two states, the state of Israel and the state of Palestine with '67 lines. We are working now on giving this perspective. This will stay as the position of the European Union in any case."
U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement last week that the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem and move its embassy from Tel Aviv sparked demonstrations across the Muslim world.
