Asked to comment on the recent developments in the Middle East Peace Process, the PMOS aid that we were in close contact with the Israeli government and with the Palestinians in the run up to the Palestinian conference here on the first of March. The meeting of the two leaders was clearly a very welcome development. We recognised, as President Bush had in his State of the Union address last night, that there were serious efforts taking place to try and revitalise the process. That could only be for the good. We would try in a very practical way at the conference in March to help the Palestinian Authority to move forward. As the Prime Minister had said when we visited the region before Christmas, it was in Israel’s interest that the Palestinians should develop into a viable partner in the Peace Process, just as it was in the Palestinians interest to engage with Israel.
