(Baroness Anelay, Minister of State, FCO) “My Lords, we will mark the centenary of Balfour with pride. The Prime Minister has extended a guest of Government invitation to Prime Minister Netanyahu to visit the UK on the centenary. We are proud of our role in the creation of Israel. However, we recognise that the declaration should have called for the protection of political rights of non-Jewish communities in Palestine, particularly their right to self-determination. This is why we support a two-state solution.

… The Balfour Declaration was an historic statement and one for which the United Kingdom has no intention to apologise.
… we are in active discussions with like-minded partners to support the [United Nations Human Rights] council in addressing the fact that there appears to be a disproportionate focus on Israel in the council, which we believe hardens positions on both sides.
… it is necessary to ensure that they do not proceed with such settlements.”
