A trade official from London has travelled to Tehran to test the waters for expanding relations. Simon Penney was appointed last year as the UK trade commissioner for the Middle East, Afghanistan and Pakistan. 
He is on a 5-day visit to Iran to explore prospects for expanding trade relations, in particular if and when Britain’s controversial divorce from the European Union comes into effect later this month. 
"I was looking forward to seeing the country which is very important for my current role," Penney said in a talk with the Financial Tribune.
