The Palestinian Authority today welcomed what British Foreign Secretary David Cameron described a few days ago as a “surprising evolution of the UK's position” on the possibility of recognizing a Palestinian state.
In a statement, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MNE) highlighted the new stance expressed by London officials as a “significant advance”.
He said it was “a step in the right direction”, not only to achieve an immediate ceasefire, but also to “protect Palestinian citizens and ensure their basic humanitarian needs”, a “precursor” to the end of the Israeli occupation. Palestinian Territories.
In this sense, the statements issued by the Palestinian MNE, Cameron, indicated the need to be adopted as an official position by the entire British government and translated into practical actions on the ground.
Among them are upholding the “just and legitimate rights of the Palestinian people” and correcting the “historical error” committed by the United Kingdom in 1922 in relation to the British mandate issued by the then League of Nations.
“The Palestinian Authority hopes that these announcements will eventually translate into full British recognition of the State of Palestine and support for full membership of the United Nations, a necessary starting point for the success of international efforts to achieve peace”, it reads.

The United Kingdom has traditionally presented itself as a supporter of the two-state solution, but until now it preferred to make any move conditional on the parties signing a peace accord. Cameron's words, instead, suggest that this could be achieved within the framework of a hypothetical negotiation process.
