The UK government should make it clear to rulers of Iran that their behaviour towards their own people is unacceptable and stand up against Tehran's growing interventions in the region

The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom (BPCIF) censures the invitation to Iran's foreign minister Javad Zarif to attend the Syria Donor Conference on Thursday, February 4, and to address a meeting in the House of Commons later that evening.

Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, is to visit France and Italy this week for meetings with government and business representatives. The visit comes at a time when Tehran hopes to deflect attention from its intensified repression at home and hostile interventions in the Middle East.

On the occasion of International Human Rights Day, December 10, cross-party MPs from both Houses of Parliament held a conference in the House of Commons discussing the state of human rights and the current political situation in Iran, the region as well as a recent terrorist attack on Camp Liberty.

The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom (BPCIF) condemns the brutal and callous terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13. We extend our condolences to all those who lost loved ones and our hearts go out to the French people.
