UK for Iranians

Our mission

The UK wants to see Iran living in peace and co-operation with its neighbours and the wider international community. First and foremost, this means working for a peaceful, negotiated solution to the nuclear issue; a nuclear-armed Iran would bring the risk of a nuclear arms race and further conflict throughout the Middle East. In the region and beyond, we want Iran to play a constructive, rather than destructive, role. We also want to see serious progress on human rights and to improve, step by step, the UK-Iran bilateral relationship.
