Israel and the European Union have failed to resolve a row over Israel's controversial barrier in the West Bank.
High-level talks in Tel Aviv came against a backdrop of Israeli anger at international opposition to the barrier, which EU countries share.
Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom said he doubted if Israel could trust Europe any longer as a negotiating partner.
But EU envoy Javier Solana spoke of balancing Israel's security needs with the humanitarian needs of Palestinians. "
