Relations between Iran and the west are dire as Iranians keep up anti-government protests, while Tehran blames the west for fomenting the unrest. The regime is drawing ever closer to Russia, sending drones to Moscow to use against Ukraine. The US, the EU and the UK have all imposed sanctions on Iran in recent months – Britain has announced 50 new sanctions since Mahsa Amini’s death last September – and Europe and the UK are considering labelling Iran’s Revolutionary Guards a terrorist organisation. Meanwhile, an Iranian TV news service recently suspended operations in London after staff were targeted by Tehran-backed operatives. What role can the international community play in supporting the push for change?
