Spokesman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Majlis of Iran pointing to recent decision by the UK to reopen its embassy in Tehran said "The Islamic Republic of Iran as well would like to be in good relationship with all EU countries. But, the UK government must have received the message from our nation that its embassy will have to attend its diplomatic duties only.”
Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, Varamin representative to the Majlis, added "The Islamic Republic of Iran is a regionally powerful country. European countries know that without Iran, they will not be able to play a role in the Middle East either in political or in economic terms.”
"It is certain that if any embassy which would intend to interfere with our national affairs the nation as well as the government will show response. So, we hope that the UK government will reopen its embassy in Tehran having received that message,” he stated.
