Britain would consider supporting a unilateral declaration of statehood by the Palestinians if Israel fails to join substantive talks with the Palestinians to create a two-state solution, the Guardian quoted a diplomatic source as saying on Wednesday night.

"Britain's clear and absolute preference is for a negotiation to take place between Israel and the Palestinians which leads to a two state solution which everyone endorses.  But at this point Britain is not ruling anything out. The more Israel engages seriously in a meaningful peace process the less likely it is that this question of unilateral declaration would arise," the source said.
