The UK continues to be concerned by reports that arms for Hezbollah are being transported from Syria to Lebanon. We continue to monitor the situation carefully.
We are working with our international partners to ensure that UN Security Council Resolution 1701 is fully implemented. We are also working with our EU partners to assist the Government of Lebanon to improve security on the Lebanon/Syria border. To this end, the UK has committed £2.5 million to provide the Government of Lebanon with security sector assistance.
