§ Mr. Rammell
My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary visited Tehran on 29–30 June. He had positive discussions on a wide range of bilateral, regional and international issues with President Khatami, Foreign Minister Kharrazi, and Dr. Rouhani, the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council. The Foreign Secretary also urged Iran to sign and implement immediately and unconditionally an Additional Protocol to the IAEA Safeguards Agreement as a significant first step in creating the necessary confidence in Iran's stated peaceful intentions with regard to its nuclear programme.
