To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what assessment he has made of the implications for his policies of the decision of the House on 13 October 2014 in respect of recognition of Palestine.
28 October 2014
I have discussed the debate with senior Israeli and Palestinian officials. I reiterated that we share Parliament’s commitment to recognising a Palestinian State as a contribution to a negotiated two state solution, at a time most helpful to the peace process. The UK is a long-standing supporter of seeing a sovereign, democratic and viable Palestinian State - living in peace and security, alongside Israel.
