Israel: Palestinians

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN 51552, tabled on 2 November 2016

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent assessment he has made of the implications of the ongoing glorification sanctioned by the Palestinian Authority of people who have killed Israelis for the viability of a lasting two-state solution.

Answered on

8 November 2016

While we have not made any assessment on this specific issue, we regularly urge the Palestinian and Israeli leaderships to refrain from or prevent any actions that could threaten the viability of a two-state solution, including violence, incitement and settlement expansion. We continue to support the reinstatement of the Tripartite Committee on Incitement as the appropriate channel to deal with allegations of incitement from either side, and continue to press the Palestinian Authority (PA) regularly on the importance of their swift condemnation of violent attacks.
