Which begs the question as to why they have an embassy there in the first place.
We are making one fatal mistake after the other, and it’s all due to the Left’s erosion of our clarity of thinking, our sense of moral right and reliance on human experience.
EXCLUSIVE: UK GOVT SLAMS IRAN ON ISRAEL STANCE JUST DAYS AFTER BRITISH EMBASSY REOPENSGetty
Barely a week since the Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond reopened the British Embassy in Iran, a Foreign Office spokesman has slammed a senior Iranian official for his country’s anti-Israel stance.
Just a week ago, Mr Hammond said Iran’s President Rouhani indicated a “more nuanced approach” to Israel, and that aggressive statements by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei should not necessarily be seen as representative of the country’s foreign policy.
Since then however a number of embarrassing responses have come directly from the Iranian regime.
According to the Iranian Tasnim News Agency, a spokesman from the Iranian Foreign Ministry rejected media reports of talks between Iran and Britain about Iran’s attitude towards the State of Israel during Hammond’s visit. She said no such talks took place, adding that “London is expected to make up for mistakes of its past policies toward Iran” through constructive interaction and mutual respect.
Reinforcing that comment, a foreign affairs adviser to Iran’s parliament speaker, Ali Larijani, was even more certain no such comments had been made. According to the Iranian Fars News Agency Hossein Sheikholeslam “blasted British Foreign Secretary Phillip Hammond for his interfering remarks” saying: “Our positions against the usurper Zionist regime have not changed at all; Israel should be annihilated and this is our ultimate slogan.”
