Mr John Howell: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent assessment he has made of progress in the nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries.

Mr Philip Hammond: We have made some progress in recent weeks in negotiations, but we are still a long way off an agreement: Iran needs to respond positively to solutions the P5+1 have put forward if we are to make progress; and that needs to happen urgently - a lot of complex and difficult issues need to be resolved before we can reach a comprehensive deal, which addresses our proliferation concerns, and we have little time left before the deadline.
