EU’s Mogherini: Trump decision could take region ‘backwards to even darker times’

US President Donald Trump’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital could take the region “backwards to even darker times,” the EU’s diplomatic chief warns.

“President Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem has a very worrying potential impact. It is a very fragile context and the announcement has the potential to send us backwards to even darker times than the ones we’re already living in,” Federica Mogherini tells a press conference in Brussels.
