The UK remains in close contact with Iran, including at Ministerial level. The former Foreign Secretary spoke with Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif and agreed the importance of finding diplomatic solutions to de-escalating the current situation, while noting the importance of Gibraltar enforcing EU sanctions against Syria through its legal processes. I met with our senior Iranian Government representatives in Tehran in June.
