Boris Johnson: Jerusalem should be shared capital

Jerusalem should be the shared capital of the "Israeli and Palestinian states", British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Monday, following a meeting with Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki, Anadolu agency reports.

"I reiterated the UK’s commitment to supporting the Palestinian people and the two-state solution, the urgent need for renewed peace negotiations, and the U.K.’s clear and longstanding position on the status of Jerusalem: it should be determined in a negotiated settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and Jerusalem should ultimately be the shared capital of the Israeli and Palestinian states,” he said, according to a statement by the Foreign Office.

“The U.K.-Palestinian relationship is strong and long-standing and it was a pleasure to meet Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki to discuss our shared desire to strengthen it further," he added.
