MEETING WITH ISLAMIC AND ARAB COUNTRIES

I have held a constructive meeting this afternoon with the representatives of the Islamic and Arab countries accredited in Canberra.

At this meeting I provided a letter re-affirming that there has been no change in the Australian Government’s position on the legal status of the Palestinian Territories, including East Jerusalem.

Our position is consistent with relevant UN resolutions adopted over many years, including UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338.

A copy of the letter is attached.
