Prime Minister David Cameron has restated his "strong support" for a two-state solution to the Middle East conflict in a conversation with the President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas.

On Tuesday Mr Cameron and President Abbas discussed the indirect US-mediated talks which began earlier this month, with an American envoy shuttling between Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

The Middle East peace process also featured in phone discussions with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri - son of the country's assassinated former leader Rafiq Hariri.

A Downing Street spokesman said: "The Prime Minister spoke to President Abbas of the Palestinian Authority (on Tuesday).

"In the call, the two leaders took stock of progress in the US-sponsored proximity talks.

"The Prime Minister reiterated his strong support for the two-state solution, including the creation of a viable Palestinian state alongside a secure Israel."

The spokesman added: "The Prime Minister spoke to Prime Minister Hariri of Lebanon. The Prime Minister underlined the British Government's support for Lebanese sovereignty, and offered to work closely with the Lebanese Government on the future stability and security of Lebanon.
