The UK government welcomed Israel's announcement on Sunday of its plans to ease the Gaza blockade.

"I welcome today's announcement on Israel's intentions to ease restrictions on Gaza," said Foreign Secretary William Hague.

"This evening I spoke to Quartet representative Tony Blair. We both agreed that this marks an important step in the right direction," Hague was quoted by AFP as saying.

His comments came after Israel's decision to allow civilian aid into Gaza while preventing weapons and certain dual-use items from entering the strip.
