Ernest Bevin was Great Britain's first Labour foreign minister in the post-WWII era. His Middle East policy rested on economic and military partnership with the Arab states and was designed to uphold Britain's empire status in the region. Yet Arab partnership depended on the resolution of the Palestine problem, a receding prospect given Britain's growing reliance on US economic and military assistance as exemplified in the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry and how its recommendations were utilized by the White House and President Truman to suit electoral needs. Truman's Yom Kippur statement endorsing the creation of an independent Jewish state in Palestine finally led Bevin to surrender the problems to the United Nations. By doing so he brought an informal end to the British mandate.
