UK Chancellor Wants to Lead Iran Delegation UK Chancellor Wants to Lead Iran Delegation

Britain’s second most powerful man, George Osborne, says he wants to lead what might be the country’s biggest ever trade delegation to Iran next year. “I think there will be growing potential to do business with Iran,” the Financial Times quoted the UK chancellor as saying. Iran and six world powers reached a landmark agreement in July as part of which sanctions against the country will be lifted in exchange for it to limit its nuclear energy program. In a signal of how western ties have thawed with Iran, Britain reopened its embassy in Tehran last month. “Next year I would love to lead a proper, big economic and trade delegation to Iran,” Osborne was quoted as saying.
