To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, pursuant to the memorandum of understanding between the Palestinian Authority and her Department, what discussions her Department has had with the Palestinian Authority on the content of a music video broadcast on official Palestinian Authority TV on 10 April 2017 glorifying terror and promising to break the Jews.

Our partnership with the Palestinian Authority includes a commitment from the Palestinian leadership to adhere to the principle of non-violence and to tackle language and avoid actions that could incite violence or hatred. The UK continues to urge the Palestinian leadership to uphold this principle. I raised the issue of incitement with senior Palestinian counterparts during my recent visit. The UK government strongly condemns all forms of violence and incitement to violence.
