British MPs Back East Jerusalem As Palestine Capital

A group of fifty UK members of Parliament who belong to the British-Swedish All party parliamentary group, praised Swedish EU president for supporting the idea of recognizing east Jerusalem as the captial of an independent Palestine. We support the idea of East Jerusalem as the captial of a Palestine state, but this is not the time to push for this decision. Palestinians must be engaged in negotiations and they must be the ones who insist in this decision. Allowing outside forces to enter into negotiations between Palestinians and Israel is a mistake. They can express support, but hold off on pushing for this decision until there has been Palestinie-Israel discussions.
