UK FM Hopes to Lead Trade Delegation to Iran

Britain’s Finance Minister George Osborne will lead a trade delegation to Iran next year if the Islamic Republic honours a nuclear deal with world powers, the Financial Times reported.

Assuming that Iran honors the nuclear deal, and it’s properly verified, I think there will be growing potential to do business with Iran,” the FT quoted Osborne as saying. “Next year I would love to lead a proper, big economic and trade delegation to Iran.

The United Kingdom reopened its embassy in Tehran last month, and Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said sanctions could start to be lifted as early as spring next year.
