The UK Government continues to discuss and press for the action that needs to be taken to increase aid to Gaza in his regular calls with Israeli counterparts. The Foreign Secretary's Representative for Humanitarian Affairs in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Mark Bryson-Richardson, is also working intensely to address the blockages preventing more aid reaching Gaza. The Foreign Secretary recently met with Sigrid Kaag, the UN Senior Humanitarian and Reconstruction Coordinator for Gaza, who was appointed by the United Nations Secretary General pursuant to Security Council Resolution 2720 (2023). We are exploring options to support Ms Kaag in her role, as she develops her priorities.
