The UK Foreign Secretary told Prime Minister Netanyahu “you can always count on us” during his visit to Israel this week.

Dominic Raab was responding to comments by Benjamin Netanyahu who thanked Boris Johnson for “the staunch, unwavering support of our right to self-defense and the recent operation.”

“I’m here as a friend as you know that’s a great supporter of Israel,” Raab told Prime Minister Netanyahu.

“The UK welcomes the ceasefire in Israel and Gaza,” Raab said. “It is crucial that all sides now focus on ensuring it can last.”

Raab called “to make genuine progress towards a more positive future for both Israelis and Palestinians, and [to break the] cycle of violence that has claimed so many lives.”

Foreign Secretary Raab also met with Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi and Defense Minister Benny Gantz.

Raab had meetings also visted Ramallah to speak with Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh and Foreign Minister Riad al-Malki.
