Newsline: US Has No Intention to Reopen Embassy in Iran

Washington has no plans to reopen the US embassy in Iran amid the comprehensive deal on the Tehran nuclear program reached in July, US State Department Spokesperson John Kirby told journalists. On Sunday, the United Kingdom reopened its embassy in Tehran, four years after it closed the diplomatic mission. “The decision to restore diplomatic relations — that’s a sovereign decision made by states in this case the United Kingdom, they did that by reopening their embassy.
