Volume 710: debated on Monday 18 May 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to support the Government of the United States' efforts to persuade the Government of Israel to support the two-state solution. [HL3434]

Both the UK and the US have been clear, in public and in private, on the need to pursue a two-state solution in the Middle East. The UK will continue to work alongside the US and other parties to help achieve this objective, which we regard as a priority. My right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary reinforced our commitment during his intervention at the UN on 11 May 2009.
