Labor opposes the annexation of land in the West Bank by the Israeli Government. Annexation of any part of the West Bank will weaken the viability of any future Palestinian state, undermine the prospect of a two-state solution, violate international law and risk destabilising Israel’s neighbours, which the world cannot afford. We expect the Australian Government to join with likeminded countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Spain in making these concerns clear.
