Our Ambassador in Tehran continues to regularly raise the cases of Nazanin Zaghari Ratcliffe, Anoosheh Ashoori, and Morad Tahbaz with the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. When officials visit Tehran they also take all opportunities to raise these cases. The Foreign Secretary most recently raised them with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on 8 November in a phone call. I raised them with the Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Bagheri Kani in person during his visit to London on 11 November.
