The UK does not endorse the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia report. The British Government has not engaged the UN in discussions about the report, and it has been withdrawn by the UN.

The situation on the ground demonstrates the urgent need to make progress towards peace. The UK remains committed to the two-state solution as the best way to bring peace and stability to the region.
