"Peace and stability cannot be built only by military means, and not in this particular way of using military means," High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell told journalists before Foreign Affairs Council, APA reports.

Borrell noted that he knows that Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu has excluded the option of “two-state solution” process.

"I know they have a different stand, I know. The Secretary-General of the United Nations [António Guterres] knows also, and he answered yesterday in very concrete terms, saying that it is unacceptable to say “I do not want this solution”, because this is a solution that has been approved by the United Nations, and the whole international community is behind it. So, if they do not agree we have to discuss. That is why we are here. We have to discuss even if they disagree. They have to come here, and they will discuss with us, and we will study whatever solution they have in mind. Which are the other solutions they have in mind? To make all the Palestinians leave? To kill them? 25,000 already in Gaza, 70% women and children," Borrell stressed.

"Certainly, the way of trying to destroy Hamas is not the way they are doing, because they are seeding the hate for generations. We have in mind what Hamas is, what Hamas has done, and certainly we reject [it] and we condemn [it]. But peace and stability cannot be built only by military means, and not in this particular way of using military means. I say that with full respect to the victims of Hamas terrorist attacks," the High Representative added.
