In a meeting with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu attacked the new EU directives restricting interaction with Israeli entities beyond the pre-1967 lines, saying they "undermine efforts to achieve peace."

At his residence in Jerusalem, the prime minister clarified: "We both want the same thing: peace. We are committed to peace and work towards achieving it. Unfortunately, the new EU guidelines undermine the efforts to achieve peace."

"These guidelines stand in the way of a solution, which will only be achieved by negotiations between the two sides, and not by a third-party dictation," Netanyahu added.

For his part, Westerwelle said Germany would support the peace process.
