Volume 709: debated on Monday 16 March 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will request the Government of the United States to suspend their military aid to Israel. [HL1858]

We are in close contact with the new US Administration on how to advance the Middle East peace process and are encouraged by the approach they have taken so far.

We have no plans to press the US on their aid to Israel, but will be working with the US to engage the new Israeli Government on the importance of urgently making real progress towards a two-state solution.
