Foreign secretary will discuss dual-national consular cases during Brussels summit on Iran nuclear deal
Boris Johnson will raise the plight of imprisoned British mother Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe with his Iranian counterpart on the margins of an international summit.
The foreign secretary will attend talks in Brussels focused on the Iran nuclear deal amid concerns about US president Donald Trump’s opposition to the agreement.
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is a 38-year-old Iranian-British dual national who has been jailed in Iran since April 2016. She has been accused of attempting to orchestrate a “soft overthrow” of the Islamic Republic. She and her three-year-old daughter, Gabriella, were about to return to the UK from Iran after a family visit when she was arrested. Since then, she has spent most of her time in Evin prison in Tehran, separated from her daughter.
