(Worthy News) - EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday and the European Union said it would continue its role in Middle East peace diplomacy despite Israel saying it was suspending contact.

Asked about Israel's move on Sunday to suspend contact with the EU over the bloc's reinforcement of labeling rules on imports from Israeli settlements in the West Bank, a European Commission spokeswoman said Mogherini met Netanyahu in Paris on the sidelines of the global climate conference.

"EU-Israel relations are good, broad and deep and this will continue," the spokeswoman told a news briefing in Brussels, playing down the labeling decision as merely the implementation of an existing policy already being enforced by some EU states. [ Source ]
