LONDON — British Foreign Secretary David Cameron has said that the UK would consider recognizing a Palestinian state in order to bring about an “irreversible” peace between Israel and the Palestinians.اضافة اعلان

Speaking at a reception for Arab ambassadors at the House of Commons on Monday, Cameron called for “a political horizon so that [the Palestinians] can see that there is going to be irreversible progress to a two-state solution and, crucially, the establishment of a Palestinian state.”

“We have a responsibility there because we should be starting to set out what a Palestinian state would look like; what it would comprise; how it would work,” Cameron said. “As that happens, we, with allies, will look at the issue of recognizing a Palestinian state, including at the United Nations. This could be one of the things that helps to make this process irreversible.”

The UK is pushing a five-point plan that would see an end to the fighting, a “political horizon” for a two-state solution, and a technocratic Palestinian government to run both Gaza and the West Bank. Hamas’s leaders would be expelled to another country, Times of Israel reported Tuesday.
