Middle East

Asked the Prime Minister’s reaction to suggestions by the Palestinians that Russia might be a more appropriate broker for peace in the Middle East than the UK or US, the PMOS said that he hadn’t seen the proposals and was therefore not in a position to comment in detail on them. That said, the parameters of the Prime Minister’s approach to the Middle East were very well known. In his view, it was important to address both sides of the coin – both in terms of Israeli security concerns as well as the desire of the Palestinians to have their own legitimate aspirations met. That was why it was important to have an approach which was acceptable to both sides. As the Prime Minister had made clear, he regarded this issue as a high international priority and would continue to do all he could to help make progress.
