Hon Teresa Gambaro MP, Liberal member for Brisbane

Party positions on the Question of Palestine
September 2013 Federal Election, Brisbane electorate, Queensland

Thank you for your email regarding Palestine and I am pleased to provide the following response.

The Coalition strongly supports a lasting and sustainable peace solution in the Middle East and the rights of the Palestinian and Israeli people to live peacefully and safely within internationally recognised borders.  We believe this can be achieved by accommodating the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people with recognition of Israel’s right to exist through a two state solution.

A Coalition government would support international efforts aimed at achieving a lasting two-state peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians.

Between now and the election, the Coalition will be progressively provide further details of Our Plan to build a strong prosperous economy and a safe and secure Australia.

Once announced, the details of our policies will be available at http://www.liberal.org.au/.

I appreciate you writing to me on this important matter and if there is any other federal matter that I can assist you with, please do not hesitate to contact me again.

Yours sincerely

Hon Teresa Gambaro MP
