The UK is committed to making progress towards a two-state solution. We consistently call for an immediate end to all actions that undermine the viability of the two-state solution, including terrorism, anti-Semitic incitement, settlement expansion, and the demolition of Palestinian property in the West Bank. Steps to transform the situation in Gaza are also needed. We have a regular dialogue with both the Palestinian Authority and the Government of Israel at all levels. We are encouraging both sides to maintain calm and avoid taking actions which make peace more difficult to achieve. We continue to work closely with international partners strongly advocating a two-state solution and encouraging a return to meaningful negotiations between both parties.
