Lawmaker Blasts London's Hostile Policy against Iran

Member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Esmail Kowsari said that Britain has been adopting hostile measures against Tehran following the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

"The hostility reflects the depth of the grudge the British establishment holds against the Iranian nation," Kowsari added.

As regards Iran's reaction to such attitude, he stated, "If British officials ward off responsibility for their irrational and bullying moves, the Iranian nation will deliver an appropriate and firm response to them."

He added that the "sudden and unannounced" closure of the British Embassy in Tehran and the role Britain played in imposing new EU sanctions against Iranian officials run counter to common diplomatic and international regulations.

On Wednesday, British charge d'affaires in Tehran ordered the embassy to shut its doors to dozens of Iranians applying for visas until further notice.

The move came after the European Union on April 12 imposed a new round of sanctions, including asset freezes and travel bans, against 32 unnamed Iranian officials for what they have claimed as human rights abuses.

The measure was adopted at a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg.

On February 7, more than 30 Iranian legislators had signed the single-urgency for introducing the bill of the law on cutting political relations with Britain to the parliament and submitted the bill to Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani for a final approval by all their colleagues.

The 35 Iranian lawmakers who signed the preliminary bill described London's direct and indirect interference in Iran's internal affairs, hostile remarks and stances of the British officials against Tehran, financial support for seditious acts in Iran, media propaganda and spying activities against Iran as their reasons for supporting and introducing the bill.

The bill which is awaiting a final approval by a majority of the MPs necessitates the government to drop all its political relations with Britain and concurrently file lawsuits at Iranian and international bodies over the financial and spiritual damages inflicted on Iran by the British government so far.

It also urges the government to inquire the parliament's view about the resumption of relations in case the British government apologizes and asks for resuming bilateral relations with Iran.

The bill has already received the approval of the National Security and Foreign Policy commission. Late in December, the commission submitted the bill to the parliament's presiding board for final discussions and approval by all parliament members.
