British Foreign Minister William Hague said he was "delighted" to meet with opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Thursday, during her visit to the UK since the repeal of a war crimes law.
“It was an appalling situation when political abuse of our legal procedures prevented people like Ms. Livni from traveling legitimately to the UK. We have dealt with this urgently as we promised to on coming to office," said Hague.
The UK foreign minister said the meeting showed “the warmth and strength” of the Israeli-British relationship.
“Israel is an important ally and we will continue to work together to face common threats such as the Iranian nuclear program,” he said.
