The UK welcomes President Obama's early engagement and determination to work towards resolving the Israel-Palestinian issue. We support fully President Obama's emphasis on the need for Israel to end all settlement activity, the need for Palestinians to renounce violence, the importance of a two-state solution, and the importance of stimulating the Palestinian economy.
