Labour's calling for the Government to recognise Palestinian independence.

Opposition spokesperson David Parker's written to Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters, noting Israel's attacks have killed 32 thousand people in the past six months.

He says the country's ignored two UN resolutions calling for an immediate ceasefire, and is in breach of international law.

Parker told Heather du Plessis Allan most other countries recognise Palestine, and we should follow suit to progress towards a two-state solution.

He says affirming Palestine's right to exist as a separate state is a fundamental building block.
