The UK Government has long condemned Iran's destabilising activity throughout the Middle East, including its military, financial, and political support to several militant and proscribed groups. These groups represent a danger to global security such as through attacks on international shipping. The UK works closely with several nations in the Middle East, including Israel, to defend our strategic interests in the region from these malign actors. We have also deployed additional military assets to the Eastern Mediterranean and East of Suez to deter attacks on international shipping, reinforce regional stability and prevent escalation.
