The Quartet

The Quartet comprises the United States, European Union, United Nations and Russia. Its aim is to assist the parties in implementing the Roadmap. The Roadmap sets out the steps required to achieve peace between Israel and Palestine. It was presented to, and agreed by, both sides in April 2003. The government's view is that the Roadmap's step by step process is the best hope of achieving a final and comprehensive settlement of the Middle East conflict.

The Quartet is committed to the vision of two states living side by side: a safe and secure Israel alongside a viable, sovereign and democratic Palestine. The Quartet acknowledges that a sustainable solution can only be reached with the agreement of both parties, and therefore works to facilitate this process.
