Tehran: Iranian government said Tuesday that Tehran and London have agreed to appoint a non-resident charge d'affaires in a bid to resume bilateral ties.

According to Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham, after talks between Iran and British officials in New York last month, "British Foreign Secretary William Hague called (Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad) Zarif Monday.

"... and suggested appointing a non-resident charge d'affaires in the capitals of the two countries." reported Xinhua.

The two countries agreed Tuesday to appoint non-resident diplomats in their respective countries as the Iranian Majlis (parliament) had approved restoration of bilateral ties at the level of charge d'affaires, she said.

The relations of the two countries had come to a halt in 2011 following an attack on the British embassy in Tehran.
