Every Palestinian and Israeli has the right to live in peace and security. Our Embassy in Tel Aviv and Consulate-General in Jerusalem raise issues of religious freedom with the Israeli and Palestinian Governments. I also met with representatives of the Holy Land Coordination Group, Bishop Declan Lang and Bishop Christopher Chessun, on 22 June to discuss the situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and their work with the Christian community there.
