While we have not had any discussions on these specific issues with the Palestinian Authority (PA), a UK delegation led by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Permanent Under-Secretary raised the issue of incitement with the PA on 21 June. The UK continues to urge the Palestinian leadership to avoid engaging in, or encouraging, any type of action and language that makes it more difficult to achieve a negotiated solution to the conflict.
