Asked about the PM’s view on the recent announcement of Israeli settlement building, the PMS referred lobby to the statement from the Foreign Office. The FCO this morning summoned the Israeli Ambassador to London to meet with Alistair Burt. The PMS said that Mr Burt had set out our concerns.

Responding to questions about whether the FCO was considering recalling its Ambassador to Israel, the PMS said we had had a meeting and would have further discussions with the Israeli Government and international partners. He reiterated that any further action would follow discussion with Israelis and others. We were not proposing any further action at this stage.

The PMS made clear that the government was concerned about the situation and thought that what was being proposed in Israel could have a negative impact on the prospects for talks.
