Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will meet the President and Secretary of State of the United States to discuss an early resumption by Israel and Palestine of substantive peace talks leading to the creation of a Palestine state. [HL784]

My right honourable friends the Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary are in regular dialogue with their US counterparts on a wide range of issues, including the Middle East peace process.

We continue to remain committed to doing everything possible to achieve comprehensive peace in the Middle East, which includes supporting US efforts to launch a process.
