The UK position is clear, to prevent further conflict and terrorism, there must be a political solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in the form of a two-state solution which provides justice and security for both Israelis and Palestinians. The Prime Minister has pledged to work together with our partners to redouble efforts towards this end, including by providing the serious, practical and enduring support needed to bolster the Palestinian Authority. Since Hamas' abhorrent terrorist attacks on 7 October, the Prime Minister, the former Foreign Secretary and the Minister of State for the Middle East have spoken to counterparts from more than 20 countries as part of extensive diplomatic engagement. The UK has also increased our military assets in the eastern Mediterranean to deter malign actors from increasing regional tension.
