Newsline: Ireland plans to re-establish embassy in Tehran

Irish government is considering to reopen embassy in Tehran in a bid to expand trading relations with the Middle East’s second-largest economy. According to The Irish Times, Minister for Foreign Affairs Charlie Flanagan said plans to re-establish an Irish embassy in Tehran are likely to be put before the next government, as an Enterprise Ireland delegation prepares to visit Iran later this month to scope out potential areas of mutual interest in healthcare, financial services and technology. Ireland had an embassy in Tehran until 2011, but it was closed as part of wider reduction in diplomatic missions prompted by the financial crisis. Following the implementation of Iran nuclear deal and the subsequent lift of more than three decades long sanctions against the country, European companies especially from France and Italy have been in competition to sign major trade deals with Iran.
