Gantz tells EU foreign policy chief he’s committed to peace, dialogue

Defense Minister Benny Gantz spoke this morning with European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, his office says.

Gantz told Borrell he is “committed to advance the peace process” and stated his desire to keep an open dialogue with the EU and regional partners.

The statement makes no explicit mention of Israel’s plans to annex parts of the West Bank, saying the sides discussed “strengthening Israeli-EU relations” and Iran’s regional threat.
