The Government remains extremely concerned about the welfare of British-Iranian dual nationals detained in Iran, including Nazanin Zaghari-Radcliffe. Iran does not recognise dual nationality and therefore does not permit access to British-Iranian detainees.
We continue to urge the Iranian Government to release immediately all UK dual nationals arbitrarily detained in Iran, and enable them to return to their families in the UK.
We continue to raise their cases at the most senior levels in Iran, discussing them at every opportunity with our Iranian counterparts. Our Ambassador in Tehran consistently raises all of our dual national detainees cases with the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Our Embassy in Tehran continues to request consular access to our detained dual nationals, and we have been supporting their families in the UK with regular meetings and calls.
