Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN HL2369, tabled on 18 August 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government when the Foreign Secretary last spoke to the Foreign Minister of Iran to secure the release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe to allow her to return to her family in the UK.

We remain committed to doing all we can to secure Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's return home. Iran has put her through a cruel and intolerable ordeal and we have called on them, in the strongest possible terms, to end her suffering and allow her to be reunited with her family. The Foreign Secretary continues to raise the UK's serious concerns about Iran's practice of detaining foreign and dual nationals with his Iranian counterpart. Our Ambassadors in Tehran have regularly raised our detainees with the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
