The British Government remains extremely concerned about Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's welfare. We repeatedly call for her release at the highest levels and our Embassy in Tehran continues to request consular access. The Prime Minister raised his concerns about dual national detentions with President Rouhani on 24 September. The Foreign Secretary raised his concerns with Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif on 17 September and met Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's husband on 2 September to reinforce the UK's support in bringing his wife home. We are in regular contact with Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's family and we urge Iran to release Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe so they can be reunited.
