UK to expel all Iranian diplomats over embassy attack

The UK is to expel all Iranian diplomats following the storming of its embassy in Tehran, Foreign Secretary William Hague has announced.

He said he had ordered the immediate closure of the Iranian embassy in London.

Tuesday's attack by hundreds of protesters followed Britain's decision to impose further sanctions on Iran over its nuclear programme.

The sanctions led to Iran's parliament reducing diplomatic ties with the UK.

Mr Hague said he was demanding the immediate closure of the Iranian embassy in London, with all its staff to leave the UK within 48 hours.

"If any country makes it impossible for us to operate on their soil they cannot expect to have a functioning embassy here," Mr Hague told MPs.

He said there had been "some degree of regime consent" in the attacks on the embassy and on another U

  • The problem with Iran is that you have over half the population wanting change, a third standing on the fence, and under 20% with all the power - fiscally and militarily. Iran can be SEVERELY damaged - require YEARS of hardship and recovery - by a one week bombing campaign, due to their reliance on oil as the major export, and a disproportionate population to natural resource ratio. Problem is, bomb Iran and the fence-sitters fall in behind the government. the result of that is the moderates ge More..

  • Politicians hide themselves away
    They only started the war
    Why should they go out to fight
    They leave that role to the poor.

    Can't blame the Brits for this. Heard somewhere that the second explosion in Iran at a Nuclear facility was the first deployment of a space weapon.

    • @heinz42 - I am not sure how to read your comment. If you are criticizing the UK for ending relations with Iran, you're being short sighted. Iran is quickly shedding any semblance of being a democracy towards being a religious totalitarian state. And they have enough money to make the rest of the world miserable by supporting terrorism - regardless of the cause. AND they have the support of China and Russia. Do you think the Germans can't be next?

    • @heinz42 - when do YOU end an abusive relationship? When are you not an equal party, but just an enabler? European nations that still have relations with Iran, despite the stonings, the public hangings, the violent purging of dissent, are - by default - supporting these crimes and the madmen who perpetrate them.
