HC Deb 15 September 2004 vol 424 cc1613-4W
Dr. Tonge

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make representations to the Israeli Government that it should ensure that the route of the security wall does not become the border of the Israeli state. [188498]

Mr. Rammell

As my right hon. Friends the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary have stated on numerous occasions, final status issues such as the border between Israel and a future Palestinian State can only be decided by the two parties during final status negotiations. We have made our view clear to the Israeli Government, most recently when the Foreign Secretary met with Israeli Vice Prime Minister Olmert on 8 September.
