The UK’s non-resident Chargé d’Affaires to Iran, Ajay Sharma, today visited Tehran for the first time in his new role. Speaking after the visit, he said:

"I had a good first visit back to Tehran today and want to thank the Iranian authorities, particularly my counterpart Mr Habibollahzadeh, for facilitating the trip. I held detailed and constructive discussions with the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs about taking forward our bilateral relationship on a step by step and reciprocal basis. I also visited our Embassy compounds to assess the damage caused in 2011.

"I intend to visit Iran regularly to continue the step by step process of improving relations between our two countries."
