Tehran (AFP) — Iran confirmed Tuesday it will appoint a non-resident charge d’affaires with Britain, as the two sides work towards restoring ties severed after an attack on the British embassy in Tehran.

“Following the meeting between the two foreign ministers in New York, (Britain’s) William Hague on Monday called Iranian (counterpart) Mohammad Javad Zarif to propose the appointment of charges d’affaires in both countries,” ISNA news agency quoted foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham as saying.

“Pursuant to a decision by the Iranian parliament, it was agreed that from today the two countries have a relationship at the level of non-resident charges d’affaires,” she added.

Earlier on Tuesday, Hague said Britain and Iran would each appoint a charge d’affaires, a diplomatic post that is one level below ambassador.

Britain ordered Iran’s embassy in London to shut after closing its own in Tehran following the storming of the compound by hundreds of Islamist students in November 2011.

They were demonstrating in front of the embassy to express anger over Western sanctions adopted against Tehran over its disputed nuclear drive, and then ransacked the building.
