Bishop of Southwark asks Government about political reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah

On 11th July 2017 the Bishop of Southwark, Rt Revd Christopher Chessun, received a written answer to a question on political reconciliation in Palestine:

The Lord Bishop of Southwark: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to encourage political reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah.

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: We support the Palestinian people in realising self-determination through an independent, sovereign, and unified Palestinian state based on the 1967 border with land swaps as appropriate. We have made it clear that we will engage with any Palestinian government that shows through their words and actions that they are committed to the rejection of violence and pursuit of a negotiated peace.
