Iran & Britain resume Diplomatic Relations

Iran and Britain officially resumed diplomatic relations severed by London after students stormed its Tehran embassy in 2011. “From today relations between Iran and Britain are resumed at the non-resident charges d’affaires level,” Deputy Foreign Minister Majid Takht-Ravanchi said, adding that the countries’ flags were raised atop their embassies in Tehran and London. The British Foreign Office confirmed the news.
Britain had ordered the closure of Iran’s embassy in London after shuttering its own in Tehran when hundreds of students stormed the compound in November 2011. Since then, the Swedish embassy in Tehran has represented Britain’s interests there, while the Omani embassy in London has done the same for Iran.
