There is the high risk of escalation in the region, in the border of Lebanon - Israel and also in the Red Sea, said Joseph Borrell, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy in his Statement after his visit to Saudi Arabia, APA reports.

Mr. Borrell stressed that, this escalation must be avoided:

“We have to avoid the war spilling over. The war has to stop, not to expand. And the only solution for avoiding the war [from] expanding is to look for a political solution for the conflict between Israel and Palestine. And this will require a strong commitment of the international community and to start with, the European and the Arab people.”

High Representative of EU noted that he is going back to Brussels with the commitment between the European and the Arab world to work for that, and to avoid a war expanding in the region.

“It is in nobody's interest [to have] another war in the border with Lebanon, it is in nobody’s interest to jeopardise the traffic, the transportation of the ships in the Red Sea. Well, maybe it is in the interest of someone, but certainly not in the interest of humankind,” Joseph Borrell added.
