We take Iran's support, in the form of funding arms and training, to armed militants including Hamas very seriously.
We continue to work with international partners to urge Iran to play a more constructive role in the middle east region. We will continue to press for the full implementation of UN Security Council Resolutions which prohibit Iran from supplying or selling arms or related material.
We have regular and ongoing dialogue at an official and political level with Arab states on wide range of regional issues including Iran.
The Government have consistently condemned the Iranian President's inflammatory comments about the State of Israel and his offensive statements about the Holocaust. Such rhetoric is a recipe for instability and only serves to undermine international confidence in Iran's willingness to act as a respectable member of the international community. We will continue to speak out in response to such deplorable and ignorant comments.
