Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN 214400, tabled on 11 November 2014

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether human rights abuses in Iran and that country's support for terror groups have been discussed as part of the nuclear negotiations between the P5+1 and Iran.

Answered on

17 November 2014

The nuclear negotiations between the E3+3 and Iran have focused entirely on resolving the nuclear issue. We do however remain extremely concerned both by Iran’s poor human rights record, and by its links to militant groups outside its borders. We continue to address these problems in our bilateral contacts with Iran and through multilateral channels such as the UN.
