We have not made an assessment of the economic impact on the UK, as the UK does not believe that imposing sanctions on Israel would be a constructive step.
We do not agree with many of Israel’s actions with respect to the Occupied Palestinian Territories and do not hesitate to express strong views whenever we feel it necessary. At the same time, we enjoy a close and productive relationship with Israel which enables us to express our views at senior levels very frankly.
