UK-Iran relations are hindered by the Iranian authorities’ harassment of our embassy in Tehran and their insistence on blaming the UK for all of Iran’s problems. We will continue to seek to engage the Iranian authorities on the many important issues of concern, including Iran’s nuclear programme, human rights abuses and restrictions on civil liberties, and Iran’s role in the region. We will also continue to press for a satisfactory resolution to the bilateral issues between us, including the arrest of embassy staff in Tehran.
