Lord Taylor of Warwick asked her Majesty’s Government “what plans they have to review the UK’s participation in the Iran nuclear agreement following escalating tensions in the region.”

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Office responded “​We regard the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) as a crucial agreement that makes the world a safer place by neutralising the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran. 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 JCPoA, a key achievement of the global nuclear non-proliferation architecture, which is in our shared security interests.
