British ex-minister: UK, US were 'malign' force in Iran
Former foreign secretary Jack Straw said Friday that Britain and the United States had been a "malign force" in Iran in the past, after a relationship-building visit to Tehran.


Straw and three other British members of parliament visited Iran this week amid a thawing of relations between Britain and the Islamic Republic, after ties were severed in 2011 when hardline Islamists ransacked the British embassy compound in Tehran. (AFP)
