Gill Furniss asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs “what the Government’s policy is on the maintenance of Iran Nuclear Deal.”

Andrew Murrison, Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Office, responded that “We are clear that maintaining this deal is critical to our national security interests; the British Government is working with our European partners to ensure it is upheld as long as Iran continues to meet its nuclear commitments in full. We are urging Iran not to take escalatory steps and to continue to meet its commitments under the deal. While Iran is in compliance, we remain fully committed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, a key achievement of the global nuclear non-proliferation architecture, which is in our shared security interests.”
