Defense Minister Ehud Barak held a meeting with UK Foreign Secretary William Hague in London on Thursday, in which the two discussed a range of issues including restarting the peace process with the Palestinians and strengthening Israel in the international community. The two also spoke about wide-ranging challenges faced by Israel, such as recent events in the Gaza Strip, Hezbollah and the Iranian nuclear program.

Following the meeting, Barak said that "relations between Britain and Israel are very important for the security of Israel and in international struggles considering the special standing Britain holds in the Middle East and in Europe."

The defense minister was scheduled to meet with his British counterpart Philip Hammond later Thursday.
