Following the temporary release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

I am relieved that Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe was today temporarily released into the care of her family in Iran. We urge the regime to ensure she receives any necessary medical care.

While this is a welcome step, we urge the government now to release all UK dual nationals arbitrarily detained in Iran, and enable them to return to their families in the UK.
