​As the architect of the British Government’s first ever Counter-Extremism Strategy, the Prime Minister has reaffirmed this Government’s unwavering commitment to tackling extremism in all its forms. In Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, the UK’s goal is to preserve the viability of the two-state solution and support peace efforts - a lack of progress towards peace can contribute to regional tensions and extremism. To that end, our support is helping to maintain stability, and we are committed to supporting the institutions of a future Palestinian state to ensure it can effectively deliver services and act as a partner for peace with Israel
