​We are aware of reports that Hizballah continues to amass an arsenal of weapons in Lebanon. The UK remains concerned about the threat that this poses to regional stability and the direct contravention of UN Security Council Resolutions 1559 and 1701. We will also continue to take action with the international community to encourage Iran to play a transparent and constructive role in regional affairs.
