Iran urges Britain to amend attitude toward Tehran


22:56, November 28, 2011

TEHRAN, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast urged British officials on Monday to correct their attitudes towards Iran, the local satellite Press TV reported.

Mehmanparast's remarks came as Iran's highest legislative body, Guardian Council of the Constitution, unanimously approved reducing diplomatic ties with Britain on Monday.

If British authorities intend to promote ties with Iran, they had better prepare the ground for changing the public opinion of the Iranians towards Britain by appropriately modifying their attitudes towards the Islamic Republic, Mehmanparast was quoted as saying.

The Iranian spokesman expressed hope that the British officials would take measures in such a way as to avert tension and confrontation, said the report.

Iran's Majlis, or parliament, voted on Sunday to reduce the country's diplomatic ties with Britain.

The bill, which turned into a law after the Guardian Council's endorsement on Monday, requires the Iranian Foreign Ministry to reduce diplomatic ties with Britain from the ambassador level to the level of charge d'affaires within two weeks.
