We work closely, and have regular discussions, on a range of areas; particularly counter-terrorism where UK-Saudi co-operation is vital.

answer text <p>​While we have not made any assessment on this issue, the Government takes its defence export responsibilities extremely seriously and operates some of the most robust export controls in the world. We only approve equipment which is for Israel's legitimate self defence and where we are satisfied it would be consistent with the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria and other relevant commitments. We continue to assess the situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories and take into account the latest circumstances when assessing licence applications.</p> more like this

answer text <p>​While we have no plans to assist with this specific issue, officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv and Consulate General in Jerusalem have raised our concerns recently with the Israeli Government and the Palestinian Authority (PA) respectively over the situation in Gaza. Israeli hospitals do treat Palestinian patients following referrals from the PA. Where referrals have been made, we continue to encourage the Israeli authorities to grant permits to allow greater Gazan access to critical healthcare.</p> more like this

answer text <p>​While we are proud that the UK played a role in helping to make a Jewish homeland a reality, we also understand and respect the sensitivities many have about the Balfour Declaration. Balfour remains unfinished business. That is why we are committed to ensuring that the whole of Balfour is fulfilled, through a two-state solution which provides security and justice for both Israelis and Palestinians. Our focus now is on encouraging the parties to take steps which bring them closer to peace.</p> more like this

answer text <p>​We welcome the progress made towards the 'Red to Dead' water supply agreement between Israel and the Palestinians announced in July 2017. The fair and effective distribution of shared water resources across the Middle East is of great concern to us. These resources are limited and therefore require effective co-operation from all parties to manage them in such a manner that ensures there will be enough for all. Although this issue transcends the Arab-Israeli conflict, it is essential that Israel and the Palestinians discuss this issue and ensure that there is a just solution on shared water resources.</p> more like this
