Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta made a direct plea to her Iranian counterpart to urgently let a New Zealand couple leave the country.

Social media personalities, Topher Richwhite and Bridget Thackwray, were not able to leave Iran for a number of months.

Nanaia Mahuta says her officials have been providing support to the couple, and their families, for a number of months.
