The Australian Labor Party’s position on the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is clear, and set out in our National Platform which states:
“Labor supports an enduring and just two-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, based on the right of Israel to live in peace within secure borders internationally recognised and agreed by the parties, and reflecting the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people to also live in peace and security within their own state.”
I believe in hearing different views and perspectives, particularly in a conflict as complex as that between Israel and the Palestinians, and to this end I met with representatives of both the State of Israel and the Palestinian Authority on my trip to the region last year. I expect to do so in future trips as well.
