Douglas Alexander on Labour's foreign policy

On an Israeli-Palestinian settlement:

To continue to build settlements on other people’s land is wrong, and it is illegal. And so too is launching rockets into Israel ...

We will work with our international partners to see not only a secure Israel but a viable Palestinian State.

On Iran:

Britain must continue to work for a peaceful resolution to this crisis with our international partners led by Cathy Ashton.

On "winning back trust":

The long shadow of the last difficult decade has taught us many lessons. We have to win back trust. I understand that ...
