Iranian state TV claims incorrect statement by foreign secretary about British-Iranian woman ‘inadvertent confession’ of spying
Boris Johnson is under fresh pressure over Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe after Iranian state television cited his erroneous statement about the jailed British-Iranian woman as “an inadvertent confession” that she was spying in Iran.
Iran’s national television service (IRIB), whose programmes of this type are sanctioned by senior officials, remained defiant in the face of efforts by the British foreign secretary to rectify his mistake concerning Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who is serving a five-year jail term.
