Details

The government welcomes the Foreign Affairs Committee’s report on the UK’s policy towards Iran, published on 14 July 2014 and its broad support for the government’s approach on these important issues. The report’s thorough analysis and conclusions are an important contribution to the policy debate at a rare moment of opportunity in the nuclear diplomacy and in UK/Iran relations.

We thank the committee for its recognition of our attempts to improve human rights in Iran, its support for our approach to improving bilateral relations with Iran and its praise for UK’s role in cementing a united E3+3 approach to nuclear negotiations on Iran’s nuclear programme. This command paper sets out in full our response to each of the committee’s conclusions and recommendations.
