The UK supports the Palestinian Authority as a basis for laying the foundations for a safe and secure Palestinian state. In line with United Nations Security Council Reslution 242 (1967) the UK has always supported the right of all parties in the region to a just and lasting peace, with secure and recognised boundaries.
