Middle East

Asked if there would be any new initiatives from the Prime Minister on the Middle East, the PMOS said the Prime Minster had said after his last visit that we would visit the region again in the autumn. This remained very firmly his intention. He remained in a variety of ways in very close touch with all main players. This was an issue that we would return to in the coming weeks.

Asked if the Prime Minister would be open to hosting a conference in London for donors on encouraging economic investment, the PMOS said we knew that these were issues that we needed to address. The format in which we addressed them was something that we were reflecting on.

Asked if the Prime Minister had discussed anything along these lines with Shimon Peres on his recent visit to the United Kingdom, the PMOS said these were matters that we needed to keep on discussing. The economic aspect was one side of it and trying to get dialogue between Israel and Palestine was another. Equally, supporting Prime Minister Signoria in Lebanon was another part.
