The European Union on Tuesday urged Israel to guarantee equality for all its citizens after Prime Minister Binymain Netanyahu offer the previous day to continue the building moratorium in the West Bank in return for Palestinian Authority recognition of Israel as the Jewish national home, according to AFP.

"We support the two democratic states living side by side in peace and security," a spokeswoman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton told AFP. "We also stress that the future states of Palestine and Israel will need to fully guarantee equality to all their citizens."

"Basically in the case of Israel this means whether they are Jewish or not," said the spokeswoman Maja Kocijancik.
