GAZA CITY - 1 February 2018: German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel expressed concern Wednesday about the growing distance within Israel's current government from the two-state solution.

It exhibits "at best mixed signals [which] do not go unnoticed in Europe, where there is growing frustration with Israel's actions,"Gabriel was quoted by Haaretz as saying.

Speaking at the Institute for National Security Studies conference in Tel Aviv following a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he pointed to a changing geopolitical landscape and a shift in US priorities abroad.

The US is "less willing to shoulder the responsibility - and the costs - of the international liberal order," said Gabriel.

"We regret this - but this doesn’t change the fact: We have to react and adjust." he added.
