Asked for an update on the situation regarding the eight British military personnel being held in Iran, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that the Iranian authorities had now confirmed to us that they would be releasing the eight later today. We remained in discussion with them through the British Embassy in Tehran. As we believed we were moving towards a resolution, we did not think it would be helpful to say anything else at this stage because we didn’t want to prejudice what was happening in Iran at this time.
