That this House notes that the city of Dundee has become the first city in Scotland to officially recognise the state of Palestine; further notes that this follows the 40-year anniversary of the twinning of Dundee with the Palestinian city of Nablus in 1980; commends all those involved locally in Dundee who maintain important links between the two cities; believes that a two-state solution is made more possible if both sides are treated as equals; and calls on the Government to follow the City of Dundee’s lead and officially recognise Palestine as an independent and equal nation state.
