In August this year, following the reopening of the British embassy in Tehran, Straw described the thaw in relations between Iran and UK as “very good news”, saying that Iran is a very important country which the UK needs to improve its trade with.

Straw told the Telegraph that he was “not in any doubt” that all these steps were the result of the nuclear agreement concluded between Iran and the world’s leading powers last month.
