Cameron willing to reopen embassy in Tehran

TEHRAN, Jul. 17 (MNA) – UK’s Cameron welcomed the Iran Deal and expressed willingness to reopen embassy in Tehran in phone conversation with Iran’s President Rouhani.

The British PM spoke to President Rouhani over phone on Thursday, two days after the conclusion of negotiations over Tehran’s wholly-civilian nuclear program in Geneva and the agreement deal signed by Iran and the Sextet.

Cameron welcomed the ‘historic’ agreement reached between Iran and the five permanent members of UN Security Council on July 14, greeting Iran’s constructive role in the negotiations.

On his Twitter profile, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani commented that Cameron expressed an interest in reopening his country’s embassy in Tehran.

British Prime Minister had a ‘cordial’ and ‘substantive’ 20-minute phone call with Iranian President during which Cameron reaffirmed his commitment to reopen UK’s embassy in Tehran by the end of current year.

A fresh sign of thawing relations, Cameron’s mention of reopening embassy in Tehran comes after the public announcement of British FM Philip Hammond on Wednesday.

The British government said the two sides discussed how the “deal would pave the way for stronger relations, and about what that would mean in terms of bilateral relations and our aim to reopen the embassy.”
