EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini released a statement on Wednesday following a vote at the United Nations Security Council on a Palestinian resolution calling for Israel to withdraw from territories it captured in 1967 within a three-year period.

The Security Council rejected the draft on Tuesday, with eight members voting in favor of the measure and two voting against it. There were five abstentions.

The vote, the EU's new foreign affairs chief said, underscores "once again, the urgency of resuming" peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians as well as "the need for the international community to focus on" reaching a "comprehensive" peace agreement.

To achieve a lasting deal based on the two-state solution, "clear parameters" would have to be put in place, read Mogherini's statement.

The EU also urged both sides of the aisle to "urgently" return to the negotiating table and avoid any action that could undermine a solution. "The European Union will promote and support now more than ever efforts to achieve a lasting peace," the EU said.
