Israel and Palestine: Quartet

Volume 703: debated on Monday 14 July 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they intend to take to follow up their representations and those of the quartet to Israel, such as on 2 May, about the Palestinians. [HL4531]

We maintain a regular dialogue with the Government of Israel and urge them to fulfil their obligations under the quartet road map. My right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary most recently spoke to the Israeli Foreign Minister on 24 June. The UK actively supports the quartet representative and his office, who are working on a number of confidence-building measures. Our posts in the region also feed evidence into the US-led road map monitoring process.
