Foreign Minister Marise Payne told parliament on 12 September that the federal government is making continued efforts to get three Australians released from jail in Iran. The three are Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, Jolie King and Mark Firkin, with King and Firkin arrested for flying a drone over a military installation. As part of the government’s efforts to get the three released, Payne flew to Bangladesh in the week ending 6 September to meet with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on the sidelines of the Indian Ocean Conference.
