The Foreign Secretary William Hague has reportedly told a meeting of Conservative MPs that "lessons will be learned" from how the Government handled the vote on possible military action on Syria:
David Cameron has insisted that changing the UK approach to Iran would not provide a "magical key" to solving the Syrian conflict.
The Prime Minister was urged by Labour MPs, including former home secretary Jack Straw, to look carefully at improving relations with Iran following the recent election of Hassan Rouhani as president.
Mr Cameron said talks with Iran had to be approached "very, very cautiously" given its actions in the recent past.
The Prime Minister said to Mr Corbyn:
The Prime Minister said he regretted last week's vote on military action in Syria, which the Government lost.
David Cameron said: "My only regret of last week is I don't think it was necessary to divide the House on a vote that could have led to a vote but he took the decision that it was."
The world is letting the people of Syria down, David Cameron said during Prime Minister's Questions as he again ruled out Britain taking part in any military action.
He said the Government would continue to exercise its "diplomatic muscle" to press for a peaceful resolution to the conflict but warned that Syrian president Bashar Assad needed to be put under real pressure from the international community.
Jesse Norman, one of the MPs who rebelled over Syria, has been removed from his role on the Number 10 policy board as a result of the vote.
The political fallout from last week's Syria vote has continued with a Cabinet minister saying the results would be a matter for Ed Miliband's conscience and the shadow foreign secretary admitting he was not comfortable with the position Labour now finds itself in.
ITV News Political Editor Tom Bradby reports:
Michael Gove lambasted Labour saying that the party would have to live with the consequences.
Shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander told ITV News that he was not "comfortable with the situation" in Syria as the UK looks unlikely to intervene.

Cameron and Miliband avoided any real debate on Syria today in Parliament, as they are both in odd and difficult positions.
For the time being it seems likely we are going to sit this one out and I think you can expect the debate on what that means to run and run.
