The EU on Thursday called on Israel and the Palestinians to work towards ending the conflict with a "renewed purpose and sense of urgency," in a statement released hours before Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will ask the UN General Assembly to upgrade the PA's status to that of non-member state.

The statement, read by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, reiterated that only a political solution could end the conflict and thus urged "both sides to seek constructive ways to overcome the current obstacles for a resumption of direct negotiations without delay or preconditions."

The EU also stated that it would not recognize any changes to the pre-1967 borders, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by the parties, before restating its "readiness to recognize a Palestinian sate when appropriate."
