SHAFAQNA – Norman Lamont, chairman of the British-Iranian Chamber of Commerce, has expressed his hope that Britain’s embassy in Iran would reopen in the near future.
He went on to say that although he is not sure, it seems that reopening of Britain’s embassy in Iran is intertwined with nuclear talks.
Britain ordered the closure of the Iranian Embassy in London after closing its own in Tehran in 2011. However, the two countries decided to restore their ties after President Hassan Rouhani took office last year.
He also said it was a “mistake” by Congress to invite the Israel prime minister to make a speech against the nuclear talks between the U.S. and Iran.
Commenting on nuclear talks between Iran and the six major powers, Lamont said that Britain totally recognizes Iran’s right to use nuclear energy peacefully.
