The UK's priority remains the achievement of a two-state solution. We continue to believe that the best way to achieve this is through negotiations. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), raised our concerns over steps that take us away from a two state solution with the Israeli government on 16 July, during his visit to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
