Our message has been clear that the UK continues to support a conditions-based approach where the development of a self-sufficient Afghan Security Force remains a key objective. The Secretary of State had an introductory call with the Acting US Defence Secretary on 8 January, where the current situation in Afghanistan was discussed. We welcome the US's continued efforts in promoting an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned peace process which is the only way to secure lasting peace.</p> more like this

This particular issue is of deep concern to the UK. The UK, alongside other European NATO partners, met with Iranian authorities on 8 January 2019 to raise our deep concerns regarding hostile activities and plots being planned and perpetrated in Europe. The UK has released a statement condemning these actions. The UK nonetheless remains committed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, for as long as Iran continues to implement it in full. However, we are clear that this commitment does not preclude us from addressing other hostile and destabilising activities.</p> more like this
