As the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right honourable friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), made clear on 30 October (Hansard, Commons; col. 148), we believe that the priority is for the new US Administration to lead a major push to restart negotiations in 2013 and arrive at a two state solution.

We continue to make our view on the urgent need for credible negotiations clear to both the Government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
