The Foreign Secretary has apologised to a British-Iranian mother over false statement he made to a Commons committee.
Boris Johnson had incorrectly told the Committee on 1 November that Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliff, who was arrested by Iranian authorities for more than 18 months, was in Tehran to train journalists.
Mr Johnson, who appologised at the Commons retracted his previous statement.
He said: “I apologise for the distress, for the suffering that has been caused by the impression I gave that I believed she was there in a professional capacity. She was there on holiday.
Mr Johnson also promised to meet Nazanin’s husband Richard on Wednesday and will visit Iran “before the end of the year.”
