While we have not discussed this specific issue with the Israeli authorities, we continue to call on the Government of Israel to ease movement and access restrictions into and out of Gaza. The Minister for the Middle East and North Africa raised the importance of urgently improving the situation in Gaza with the Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister during his visit to the region on 30 May, and the Foreign Secretary raised Gaza with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on 16 May.
