The Queen flagged her government’s intentions to continue looking for resolution to conflicts raging in the Middle East.

“My government will work to find sustainable political solutions to conflicts across the Middle East.

On June 8, the United Kingdom had held a snap general election. The ruling Conservative party, or Tories, won 318 seats, but failed to secure an absolute majority in the parliament, resulting in a hung parliament. If the Tories do not succeed in forming a coalition or minority government, it may become difficult for the party to pass laws it deems necessary.
