As Minister responsible for the UK's relations with Iran, I have yet to visit Tehran, though I note my predecessor did last year. I hope to be able to visit soon. The Foreign Secretary hopes that the opportunity to travel to Iran will arise in the future but he does not currently have any firm plans to visit. There are no current plans for Iranian ministers to visit the UK for bilateral discussions in this time.
