Securing the release of the dual British nationals arbitrarily detained in Iran, including Anoosheh Ashoori, is one of this Government's top priorities. Their welfare is our key concern. The Foreign Secretary regularly raises the detained dual British nationals with Foreign Minister Zarif. Our Ambassador to Tehran discusses them at every opportunity with his Iranian counterparts, most recently with Deputy Foreign Minister Araghchi on 30 December.
