LONDON - Britain said on Thursday Sweden would look after its interests in Iran as part of a deal hammered out after the UK closed its Tehran embassy late last year at the height of a diplomatic confrontation.

Iranian protesters broke into two British diplomatic compounds in Tehran in November, ransacking offices and burning British flags in protest against new sanctions.

The incident sparked a major row between the two countries, with Britain shutting its embassy in Tehran and then expelling all Iranian diplomats from London.

Oman said last month it had started representing Iran in London, indicating a possible slight thawing in Anglo-Iranian relations.

Sweden's foreign ministry confirmed on Thursday it had agreed to perform the same role for Britain in Iran.
