Israel is not a member of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty which would require among other things inspections of their nuclear facilities. Israel continues to voluntarily allow inspections of the US-supplied research reactor at Nahel Soreq. British Government officials have regular dialogue with the Government of Israel on nuclear issues, including on the treaty on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons (NPT) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Our long-standing position is to encourage all countries to adhere to the NPT.
