USA: Iran

Volume 491: debated on Wednesday 22 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with the US Secretary of State on President Obama’s recent video broadcast to the Iranians. (268752)

We continue to have regular discussions with the US on the full range of Iran related issues, including during President Obama and Secretary Clinton’s visit to the UK. We fully support President Obama’s recent message to the Government and people of Iran and welcome his commitment to direct engagement and a relationship based on mutual respect if Iran is willing to do the same. I urge Iran’s leaders to respond positively to the opportunity this presents to work constructively with the international community.
