Answered on

30 June 2014

We assess that the Arab Peace Initiative, through its offer of the normalisation of relations between Arab states and Israel in the event of a comprehensive peace agreement, is highly relevant to the stability of the Middle East. During the 3rd EU-Arab League Summit in Athens on 11 June the Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Faversham and Mid Kent (Mr Robertson), reaffirmed our support for the Arab Peace Initiative as an important signal of the benefits a comprehensive peace deal would bring for the entire region.
