Britain's Gove offers support to foreign secretary over Iran comments

Gove                   Michael Gove has backed his Vote Leave ally

About 20 minutes later, Environment Secretary Michael Gove was asked in a BBC interview what the Briton was doing in Iran and replied: "I don't know". "Her family should be the people who are in our thoughts at this time".

Tulip Siddiq told Sky News that Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was "inconsolable", "sobbing down the phone" to her husband and "couldn't believe (Mr Johnson) could make comments that would endanger her life".

Mr Johnson was criticised for saying Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe was in the country "training journalists", a comment that were seized on by Tehran to justify its threats to extend the sentence of the British-Iranian.

She maintains the goal of her trip to Iran was to visit family.

In his article, Corbyn says that the "heartbreaking" case of Zaghari-Ratcliffe has left her future liberty in peril because of Johnson's "serial bungling".

He added: "I think he's our Foreign Secretary whose job is diplomacy and representing the best interests of our country and if Theresa May was a strong Prime Minister she would have sacked him a long time ago". "No evidence has been produced which suggests she should be detained". She was sentenced to five years in jail and her child was placed in the care of her parents.

Michael Gove said he doesn't know what British mum Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was doing in Iran before she was arrested and jailed.

Gove, however, told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "One of the things I want to stress is that there is no reason why Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe should be in prison in Iran so far as any of us know".

The Foreign Secretary also called Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's husband on Sunday and is said to have had a "constructive" conversation.

Blundering Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is thought to have added five years to her jail term after he said that she had been "training journalists".

"Michael Gove must have known he would be asked that question and yet answered in that way".

The foreign secretary has admitted he "could have been clearer" with his comments and insisted they had been taken out of context.

Jeremy Corbyn called on Mr Johnson to go, saying he had been "putting our citizens at risk for long enough", and London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he should resign or be sacked following his "long list of gaffes" as Foreign Secretary.

She was separated from her daughter and spent the first eight months in solitary confinement as she was interrogated by Revolutionary Guards.

There is also speculation over May's de facto deputy, Damian Green, was forced to deny allegations that "extreme" pornographic material was found on his work computer in 2008.

She is also facing criticism over the UK's handling of the Brexit negotiations with the government being called upon to release secret documents detailing the economic impact of withdrawing from the European Union.
