Asked if the Prime Minister had any response to Ron Prosor, the Israeli ambassador to London, who blamed the Palestinians’ situation on Hamas, the Prime Minister’s Spokeswoman (PMS) said that the Prime Minister had been clear in the press conference this morning about his long-held views on Gaza, and the need for progress in the Middle East peace process. The Prime Minister said this morning that we had long supported lifting a blockade of Gaza and we had long supported proper humanitarian access. Even though some progess had been made we were still in the situation where it was very difficult to get in.

Asked if there would be any contact between the UK and Israel to clarify the Prime Minister’s comments, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had made a similar comment in the House of Commons in June; it was a difficult situation and we needed the Palestinians and Israelis to start talking.

Asked if the Prime Minister thought his comments today would speed up discussions, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had spoken to both Prime Minister Netanyahu and to President Abbas last Friday.
