Newsline: Iran official says British Embassy in Tehran reopens Sunday

Iran’s deputy foreign minister says Britain will reopen its embassy in Tehran on Sunday after it being closed for nearly four years. Majid Takht-e-Ravanchi also told state television on Saturday that the Iranian Embassy in London also will reopen at the same time. Takht-e-Ravanchi says British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond will attend the reopening of the British Embassy in Tehran on Sunday. It will be the first visit by a British foreign secretary to Iran since 2003. Takht-e-Ravanchi said the two embassies will operate at charge d’affaires level. The British Embassy has been closed since hard-liners protesting the imposition of international sanctions stormed it in November 2011.
