James Sunderland raises concerns about Iran and peace in the Middle East

James Sunderland raises concerns that whilst talks on reviving the joint comprehensive plan of action nuclear deal (JCPOA) continue, Iran is getting closer to a nuclear weapon thereby threatening peace in the Middle East.

As talks continue in Vienna on reviving the joint comprehensive plan of action nuclear deal, there are fears that Iran gets ever closer to a nuclear weapon. Will my right hon. Friend please convince the House of what is happening to maintain peace in the middle east?

Elizabeth Truss (The Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs)

This negotiation is urgent, and progress has not been fast enough. We continue to work in close partnership with our allies, but the negotiations are reaching a dangerous impasse. Iran must now choose whether it wants to conclude a deal or be responsible for the collapse of the JCPOA. If the JCPOA collapses, all options are on the table.
