UK Foreign Secretary to raise jailed British issue in Brussels talks
UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will raise the plight of imprisoned British mother Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe with his Iranian counterpart in the margins of an international summit, Rhyl Journal reported on Thursday.

Johnson will attend talks in Brussels focused on the Iran nuclear deal.

But he will also use the meeting to raise the issue of Mrs. Zaghari-Ratcliffe and other dual-national consular cases with Tehran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Mother-of-one Mrs. Zaghari-Ratcliffe was arrested in 2016 during a holiday visit to show her baby daughter Gabriella to her parents.

The 39-year-old, from Hampstead, north London, is currently serving a five-year sentence over allegations, which she denies, of plotting to overthrow the Tehran government.
