Post-Brexit UK Will Get Closer to Iran

A lawmaker said last month’s referendum that led to Britain leaving the European Union will have a positive impact on Iran-UK relations. In an interview with ICANA published on Friday, Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, a principlist lawmaker, said the economic implications of Brexit have worried many in the West European country. The outcome of the referendum, which was held on June 23, immediately reverberated through financial markets, with the pound falling to its lowest level in 31 years and the stocks on European markets taking hits. “Like an earthquake, Brexit had major implications in the domestic scene of Britain, the most important of which was the resignation of former prime minister David Cameroon,” he said. Following Cameroon’s resignation, Theresa May was officially appointed on Wednesday as new premier and unveiled a completely new-look Cabinet, in a major departure from his predecessor’s top team.
“The big issue for London is keeping away from an economic slump that will come closer after their EU departure,” the lawmaker said. “This will encourage them to develop [economic] cooperation with Iran.”
