Solana: EU decision on Israel ties only after J'lem completes policy review

The European Union will only make a decision on a frozen plan to upgrade ties with Israel when Jerusalem completes its review regarding peace talks with the Palestinians, EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana said on Wednesday. Solana said "not much has advanced" during talks with Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman in Prague, and that Israel was well aware of the stance of the EU, which calls for a two-state solution. "They are in the process of review," he told reporters. "They have to see how they can make something that is compatible with that."
