The UK has consistently raised with Iran longstanding concerns about destabilising activity by Iran and its proxies in other countries. I refer to the Foreign Secretary's similar comment in the House on 9 May after his statement on the Iran nuclear deal, when Rehman Chisti asked about Morocco's diplomatic relations with Iran.
