Theresa May to host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at Downing Street for talks
Downing Street said that Mrs May was expected to take the opportunity to restate Britain's concern that settlement building in the West Bank is undermining trust in the Middle East peace process.
But Mrs May's spokesman stressed that this was expected to form only a small part of discussions, which will focus on the bilateral relationship between the UK and Israel, including the potential for increased trade following Brexit.
The February 6 meeting will be the first time the two prime ministers have met, though they spoke on the telephone in August last year after Mrs May's arrival at Number 10.
News of the visit comes days Israeli police evicted settlers from Amona after the Supreme court ruled they were squatting illegally on privately owned Palestinian land.
