European leader to Rivlin: Lasting Mideast peace is a top priority for EU

Lasting peace in the Middle East is one of the European Union’s top priorities, Donald Tusk, the President of the Council of Europe told President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday.

The meeting between the two followed by a round table discussion, which Tusk described as “stimulating” took place amid growing speculation both in Israel and Europe as to whether Rivlin will meet in Brussels or Strasbourg with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas while both are scheduled to address the European Parliament – Rivlin on Wednesday, and Abbas on Thursday.
