Deputy Foreign Minister Ze'ev Elkin admitted on Wednesday that the Foreign Ministry was caught off guard with the new EU guidelines banning cooperation beyond the Green Line.

In an interview with Army Radio Elkin said the blame rests on his shoulders.

"The important question we must ask ourselves is how did we not know [about the new guidelines] while they were being formulated, this document wasn't written in a day," he said.
