Foreign Secretary William Hague has said he intends to re-open Britain's Embassy in the Iranian capital Tehran.

Hague said the "circumstances were right" following an improvement in bilateral relations in recent months.

Full diplomatic relations with Iran were suspended after attacks on the British embassy in Iran in 2011.

The election of a new Iranian president and agreement on how to deal with Iran's nuclear programme has led to increased contacts in 2014.

The move also comes as Iraqi forces are engaged in heavy clashes with Sunni Islamist militants in the country and amid reports that Iran is providing military assistance to its historic rival.
