Iran: Tehran and London formalize embassy closures

Iran says that it has agreed with Britain to formalize the closure of diplomatic offices in each other’s capitals.

Both countries shut down their diplomatic missions after Iranian hardliners stormed Britain’s embassy in Tehran last year.

A Thursday report from the state IRNA news agency quotes Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi as saying that the Omani Embassy in London will now handle Iran’s interests, while Sweden’s embassy in Tehran will do the same for Britain.
