The safety and security of our citizens is the Government’s top priority. In March of this year, we made clear in the Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy that we are committed to addressing growing threats from Iran, as well as other states. We will continue to use all tools at our disposal to protect the UK and our interests from any Iran-based threats.
