Iran vote on expulsion of British Ambassador to Iran

Iranian Parliament's vote to expel the British Ambassador is "regrettable".

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Commenting on the Iranian Parliament’s vote today, an FCO spokesperson said:

“The Iranian Parliament’s vote to expel our Ambassador, Dominick Chilcott, is regrettable. This unwarranted move will do nothing to help the regime address their growing isolation or international concerns about their nuclear programme and human rights record.

“If the Iranian Government acts on this, we will respond robustly in consultation with our international partners.”
