The Government is committed to tackling all forms of extremism – including Far Right extremism. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office has not however done any assessment of whether there are financial links between the Far Right in the UK and similar groups in the US. We work closely with other Government Departments to respond to evidence of international extremist influences where these are identified. As part of our regular bilateral engagement with international partners, including the United States of America, we will continue to raise our concerns, and explore opportunities to work together to address the wide spectrum of risks arising from all forms of extremism.
