Britain's foreign minister Boris Johnson met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani Sunday, wrapping up a visit in which he pushed for the release of imprisoned dual nationals.A key focus of Johnson's visit had been the case of British-Iranian Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who is serving a five-year prison sentence for taking part in mass protests in 2009, which she denies. Johnson took criticism from Iranian officials for not doing more to build on the nuclear deal signed with world powers in 2015 .There was similar criticism from the powerful Parliament speaker, Ali Larijani, who met with Johnson Saturday and said other European countries had put in "much more effort".
