LONDON - British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Tuesday that Britain and Iran had embarked on a process that could lead to the reopening of their embassies after diplomatic relations broke down in 2011.

"Both our countries will now appoint a non-resident charge d'affaires tasked with implementing the building of relations, including interim steps on the way towards (the) eventual reopening of both our embassies," Hague told parliament.

Iran would need to make "substantive changes" to its disputed nuclear program if it wanted the West to ease sanctions on it, he added, saying the future of British-Iranian relations would depend on concrete steps by both sides.
