London’s New Envoy in Tehran Sees Positive Path Ahead

London is keen to work toward expanding relations with Tehran in all areas, particularly trade and investment, says the new British ambassador, Rob Macaire. 
In a talk with IRNA published Tuesday, Macaire—who will succeed Nicholas Hopton in May — said positive developments have taken place in bilateral ties after the two sides reopened their embassies in 2015. The UK government shut down its embassy in 2011 after it was stormed in protest against new sanctions imposed by London. Iran's Embassy in London  was also ordered closed. 
"We've made a lot of progress. Obviously we have diplomatic relations between our countries; we have fully functioning embassies; we have full visa services in both capitals; we have a lot of opportunities in trade and increase in contacts on the cultural, tourism and people to people level. So I think things are going well."
