British lawmakers to visit Iran to help rebuild ties
British parliamentarians are to visit Iran next week to try to organize a reciprocal visit by Iranian lawmakers, the latest step aimed at improving relations between the two countries. Britain severed direct diplomatic relations with Iran after activists stormed its embassy in Tehran more than two years ago. However, the election of a relative moderate, President Hassan Rouhani, has paved the way for a thaw in ties which has helped Tehran strike a preliminary agreement about its nuclear program with six world powers, including Britain. Britain appointed a non-resident charge d'affaires to Iran in November, reviving direct ties, a step mirrored by Tehran.
