Parliamentary question: Overseas Trade: Iran

Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Graham Stuart MP, Secretary of State for International Trade on 14 May 2018
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP
"I'd like to ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what steps the Government is taking to ensure that UK businesses trading with Iran are protected from the imposition of US extraterritorial sanctions in relation to that country?"
Graham Stuart MP, Secretary of State for International Trade
"The government has recently updated its advice for doing business in Iran on gov.uk. We are working with our European partners to explore potential options for protecting UK and European business interests and maintaining sanctions relief to Iran. We have raised with the US the need to make allowance for continued economic ties between Europe and Iran – including legitimate UK business - to ensure we can meet our obligations under the deal. The UK remains party to the JCPoA and UN/EU sanctions on Iran continue to be lifted to allow UK businesses to operate in Iran."
