Chris Doyle sent this statement:

CAABU has obtained the text of a letter from the British Prime Minister,Tony Blair, on the issue of Britain's position on the future ofJerusalem. In a letter to the Chairman of the Al Quds Committee, King Muhammad VI of Morocco on 12 March, the Prime Minister made the clearest statement he has made about Britain's view on the holy city for many years. In it, Blair states explicitly that Britain does not recognize sovereignty over any part of the city. "Jerusalem's status has yet to be determined, and should be resolved as part of a final status agreement. Pending agreement, we consider East Jerusalem to be occupied territory. We recognise no one claim to sovereignty over the city. We do not support any action that predetermines final status negotiations on the future of Jerusalem."
