Israel on Friday extended its congratulations to the European Union for winning the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize.

"The exemplary success of the EU in establishing peace in Europe after two world wars is an inspiration to the whole family of nations," read a statement by Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor. The European Union crystalizes the way of reason and compromise through which nations can overcome hostility and ancient conflicts, and establish good neighborly relations, mutual trust and cooperation for the common good."

Palmor added that Israel "expects the EU to continue its efforts for promoting peace in the Middle East, through a supportive approach and understanding of the special sensitivities of the area."
