The European Union tells The Times of Israel that is “not aware” on any restrictions on EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell’s visiting Israel.

“Israel has not communicated to us anything official implying that the High Representative/Vice President could not visit Israel,” said the EU spokesman in Israel.

“We are keen to keep open all channels of communication with Israel taking into account our level of cooperation in many fields and its strategic importance in the region,” the spokesman continued.

Israeli officials confirmed to The Times of Israel today that they are not participating in coordinating any official visits.
