Foreign Secretary announces a partial reopening of Tehran embassy
Foreign Secretary William Hague announced plans for a limited reopening of Britain’s embassy in Tehran following talks with the Iranian foreign minister.
Mr Hague replied evasively: “I think we have to await the outcome of the Chilcot inquiry before we should try to pass judgement on these events.”
Urging MPs to focus on the present-day situation, he added: “We are not planning in these circumstances a British military intervention in Iraq.”
The Foreign Secretary faced the Commons within hours of US President Barack Obama’s announcement that he was sending up to 275 armed troops to “provide support and security” in Iraq for US embassy staff and other personnel.
Tory MP Robert Halfon voiced concern that reopening the Tehran embassy signalled a “softening” of Britain’s approach to Iran.
Mr Hague denied that, but added: “Iran does have the capability to play a more positive role across the region.”
Britain would work for a wider change in Iran’s foreign policy and for increased links “between the peoples of our countries” while also pursuing negotiations on the country’s nuclear capacity, Mr Hague said.
“Plaid Cymru was unequivocal in opposition to the invasion and occupation of the country in 2003 and 11 years later we are categorically opposed to any military intervention in Iraq.”
The international community must act to avoid a humanitarian crisis and seek solutions based on containing and resolving the conflict, she said.
