Foreign Minister Eli Cohen meets with Lord Tariq Ahmad, the UK minister for the Middle East region.

According to the Foreign Ministry, Cohen praises the UK for its intention to add Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps to its terror list, calling it a “clear message to the Iranian terror regime.”

Cohen, who spoke with British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly yesterday, also stresses the importance of reaching a free trade agreement with London.

Ahmad says that he reiterated British support for a two-state solution, and discussed the Iran threat, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and the Abraham Accords.
