Speaking to ICANA, the head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Majlis said regarding the decision to reopen Iran-UK relations by appointing non-resident charges d'affaires "To appoint a charge d'affaires is in keeping with the parliamentary decision, because what the lawmakers have discussed was to reestablish relations at the level of charge c'affaires.
Alaeddin Boroujeri stated "Therefore, it is internationally practiced when a non-resident charge d'affaires is appointed. The non-resident term means that instead of residing in the concerned country, the charge d'affairs make regular visits there to operate the issues concerned.”
The Boroujerd representative to the Majlis added "Due to the multiplicity of Iranian residents of the UK, it will be a proper action to appoint a non-resident charge c'affaires to resume Iran-UK relations.”
"The Majlis never said that the UK embassy must be closed. The UK itself closed the embassy with bitter feelings. Reopening the relations with non-resident charges d'affaires will be no problem.”
Previously the foreign ministers of Iran and UK had said that the two countries are going to appoint non-resident charges d'affaires in order to resume mutual relations.
