Britain's government is looking at reforming its foreign policy to focus on reducing terrorism around the world, a Sunday newspaper reported. The Sunday Telegraph said it had obtained Cabinet documents suggesting the government aim for a "significant reduction in the number and intensity of the regional conflicts that fuel terror activity," and said that in an ideal world, "the Muslim would not perceive [Britain] and its foreign policies as hostile." The memo, which the newspaper said was circulated to Cabinet ministers and security officials, also set out a sort of political wish list - which includes stability in Iraq and Afghanistan, peace in the Middle East, and a nuclear-free Iran. The newspaper quoted the memo as saying that Britain's future actions overseas should be designed to reduce "terror activity, especially that in or directed against [Britain]."
