TEHRAN – Iran’s new ambassador to the UK is going to take office on Tuesday. Deputy Foreign Minister for International and Legal Affairs Mohsen Baharvand has been appointed as the Islamic Republic’s new ambassador to London.
He is replacing Hamid Baeedinejad, who has served in the post since September 2016. Baharvand will reportedly assume his diplomatic duties on Tuesday after presenting his letter of credence to Queen of the UK, Elizabeth II. Iran and Britain named their new ambassadors to London and Tehran in September 2016 after a long period of severed ties.
