To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what assessment he has made of the effect of Fatah’s recent celebrations marking 55 years since their first terrorist attack against Israel on the prospects of securing a peaceful two-state solution.
The UK strongly condemns all acts of terrorism and incitement to violence, which are a significant barrier to achieving a negotiated solution. There can be no justification for such acts of violence. Every Israeli and Palestinian has the right to live in peace and security. We consistently call for an immediate end to all actions that act as obstacles to peace and undermine the viability of the two-state solution.
