The volatile situation in the Middle East affects both the UK and our partners in the Gulf. We are engaging with regional governments to ensure any aid and assistance is used in an appropriate manner. We recognise that various movements in the Middle East look to the Gulf for funding, but our relationship with the Gulf States is such that if we have concerns in these areas we are able to discuss them.
