Britain said to block EU from adopting Paris position

Britain has apparently blocked a meeting of EU foreign ministers from adopting the closing statement of the Paris summit, according to reports.

The move comes a day after the UK refused to sign the Paris statement, which calls on the sides to commit to a two-state solution and renounce violence.
