Following the Government statement on the situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown asks the Minister of State about strategic planning to bring about a two-state solution.
The human misery and death on both sides, Israeli and Palestinian, are the worst I have witnessed since I became a Member of this House, and they will be solved only by a long-term political solution. Will my right hon. Friend, with whom I totally agree, explain what the British Government are doing in strategic planning to bring about a two-state solution?
There is an immense amount of work going on about how we get to the point where we can achieve that. As I set out in my statement, there is no alternative to the two-state solution, and all interested parties should get behind that.
