TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Head of Iran-Britain parliamentary friendship group announced that a team of Iranian lawmakers will pay a visit to Britain.
The Parliament has agreed with the visit given “the national interests”, the MP noted.
Earlier in January, former British foreign minister, Jack Straw, led a group of British MPs on a visit to Tehran. Straw, who is also the head of Britain-Iran parliamentary friendship group, invited an Iranian parliamentary delegation to make a visit to Britain.
Iran and Britain agreed in October 2013 to appoint non-resident chargé d’affaires as a first step towards reopening their respective embassies.
The development followed a September meeting between Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his British counterpart in New York, during which the two top diplomats discussed ways to improve Tehran-London ties.
