NEC Statement - US endorsement of Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel - ReadingLib - 12-09-2017

The Liberal Party notes with great concern the unilateral decision of the US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel.
 
Such a move, although long anticipated, does nothing to encourage a resumption of the Middle East peace process, will almost certainly provoke regional anger, and effectively endorses the Israeli states illegal confiscation of land, further undermining any future regional settlement.
 
The Liberal Party remains committed to a negotiated peace in the Middle East which will allow the creation of an independent and self sustaining Palestinian state and allow the newly emerged nation’s diaspora to return.
 
The party yet again re-iterates its call for the British Government to actively and urgently promote Palestine's entry into the United Nations as a full member and that an invitation to join the Commonwealth be extended to Palestine.
