Sir Douglas-home Favors Secure Boundaries for Israel; Resolution 242 for Peace

Download PDF for this date

Foreign Secretary Sir Alec Douglas-Home said today that he supported guarantees of secure boundaries for Israel once a settlement of the Middle East conflict is achieved. Sir Alec made the remark in reply to a question in the House of Commons. He recalled that when he was in the opposition he had said that Israel should enjoy security after a settlement comparable with the security she enjoys now and that the actual form of a guarantee would emerge at the end of the Mideast peace negotiations. In reply to another question, the Foreign Secretary said Britain’s Mideast policy favored a settlement based on the terms of the Security Council’s Resolution 242 of Nov. 22, 1967 which is in the best interests of all concerned.
