Jerusalem should ultimately be the shared capital of Israeli and Palestinian states, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told his Palestinian Authority counterpart Riyad al-Malki on Monday, a statement from Britain’s Foreign Office said.

“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 UK’s clear and longstanding position on the status of Jerusalem,” Johnson said.

“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.”
