EU calls for new round of peace talks for Israel, Palestinians

The European Union on Monday called for a renewal of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, saying it will work with both sides toward a just and lasting peace based on a two-state solution.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party won the most seats in last Tuesday's election. During the campaign, Netanyahu talked about annexing West Bank settlements, a step that would likely kill any chance of a two-state solution. There have been no substantive peace talks since Netanyahu took office a decade ago.
