Our commitment to Israel's security is unwavering. Israel is an important strategic partner for the UK and we collaborate closely on issues of defence and security. The Government condemns Hizballah's destabilising activity in the region, including their stockpiling of weapons in Lebanon, which is a breach of UNSCRs 1559 and 1701. The Foreign Secretary discussed the security situation in Lebanon with Israeli Foreign Minister Lapid on 22 June and I reiterated UK commitment to Israel's security in my meeting with Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Roll during my visit to Israel in June.
