The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend
Iran is an important country in a volatile region, and maintaining embassies around the world, even under difficult circumstances, is a central pillar of the UK's global diplomatic approach. We have no illusions that returning to Iran will be easy - there will continue to be many areas where we strongly disagree. Ultimately, having an Embassy in Tehran will enable us to better understand and respond to those challenges.
