star this property answer text <p>We are gravely concerned by the continued demolition of Palestinian property by the Israeli authorities. No structures directly funded by the UK in recent years have been demolished. A number of structures funded by the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) have been demolished in recent years. The UK’s financing share of EU expenditure varies year on year but has been approximately 15%. The UK regularly raises demolitions with the Government of Israel.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>UN mechanisms are crucial to preventing Iran from exporting weapons and advancing its ballistic missile programme and it is essential that the UN investigate concerns where they are raised. We have consistently made clear our concerns to Iran about its ballistic missile programme and the supply of weapons to neighbouring countries. We continue to raise our concerns under United National Security Council Resolutions 2231 and 2216, including with France, Germany, the US and the relevant UN bodies. The British Government condemned the Houthi missile attack on Riyadh on 4 November, which deliberately targeted a civilian area and was intercepted over an international airport. The supply of ballistic missiles to the Houthis threatens regional security and prolonging the conflict. In his recent visit to Iran the Foreign Secretary pressed his Iranian counterparts to use their influence to ensure that these indiscriminate and dangerous attacks come to an end.</p> more like this
