EU foreign ministers Monday promised Israel and Palestine "an unprecedented package of European political, economic and security support" if they agree on a two-state solution. They said both countries would get "Special Privileged Partnership" status, with easier access to the single market. They also criticised Israel for ongoing settlement construction.
