Volume 490: debated on Friday 27 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment his Department has made of levels of (a) political, (b) financial and (c) military support given by the governments of (i) Syria and (ii) Iran to Hezbollah. (265979)

We assess that the Syrian and Iranian Governments continue to provide significant financial and military support to Hezbollah, although we are unable quantify the precise amounts. Both the Syrian and Iranian Governments provide political support for Hezbollah and we call on both Governments to cease this support, which only increases instability in the region.
