We see merit in a balanced UN Security Council resolution at the right moment, setting out parameters for a political settlement. Any resolution must command the full support of the Security Council. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond) has regular discussions with his French counterpart on the Middle East peace process. We will judge any proposal on the basis of whether it supports further progress in that process.
