National Policy Forum backs down and reinstates Labour support for Palestine

As we reported, the National Policy Forum report on international issues took a weaker position on supporting the Palestinians than the general election manifesto. Shortly before conference, however, the NPF backed down and added this wording from the manifesto:

“There can be no military solution to this conflict and all sides must avoid taking action that would make peace harder to achieve. That means both an end to the blockade, occupation and settlements, and an end to rocket and terror attacks. Labour will continue to press for an immediate return to meaningful negotiations leading to a diplomatic resolution. A Labour government will immediately recognise the state of Palestine.”
