The European Union has called on Israel to extend the settlement building moratorium Thursday, according to text obtained by AFP.

According to the report, the EU "recalls that settlements are illegal under international law and calls for an extension of the moratorium decided by Israel," read the declaration which was adopted by foreign ministers.

An end to rocket and terror attacks against Israel was also demanded in the declaration. The EU "continues to call for a complete stop to all violence, in particular rocket fire and terrorist attacks," the statement read.

The 27 nation alliance said in the text that it is "indispensable that both parties observe calm and restraint and refrain from actions that could affect negatively the process of negotiations."
