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 warned on Thursday.The EU, along with other major international powers, has repeatedly voiced deep concern this week about Trump's declaration.The EU has long supported a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict and Mogherini said the 28-member bloc would keep working with both sides -- as well as regional players such as Egypt and Jordan -- to restart direct talks.Netanyahu's visit, which is to include an "informal" breakfast with EU foreign ministers, was planned before Trump's announcement, but the Jerusalem issue is now set to dominate the meeting.
