Iran: Foreign Relations

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the outcome of the review of UK relations with Iran announced in April 2007. (147483)

The review of relations with Iran is continuing, but the principles underpinning our policy towards Iran have not changed.

Iran has every right to develop its own economy and society. We welcome dialogue and engagement with Iran as it does so, but it must also accept that it has responsibilities to the region and the wider international community. It cannot violate the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty nor undermine regional stability.
