Britain Moving To Re-Open Embassy In Iran, BBC Reports

(Undated) -- Britain is expected to announce today that it is moving to re-open its embassy in Tehran. Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague says he spoke with the foreign minister of Iran over the weekend.
The BBC reports Hague will announce a plan to strengthen relations with Iran. That plan would lead to re-opening the embassy Britain closed three years ago after a mob ransacked the mission. This comes as Iran and the U.S. are talking about working together to shore up the Iraqi government as Sunni insurgents are rampaging across Iraq.
