asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the reservations they have about the PLO's policies apply equally to Israel, and what ambiguities remain as regards the Israeli Government's recognition of the Palestinian right to self-determination, the renunciation of violence and terrorism, acceptance of Resolutions 242 and 338 and willingness to attend an international conference.
§ The Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Lord Glenarthur)
The main parties in the Israeli Government say they accept the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people (excluding self-determination) and Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338. But they are divided over attendance at an international conference.
