Britain: Iran's decision to downgrade ties is 'regrettable'

The British foreign ministry said Sunday it was "regrettable" that Iran's parliament approved a draft bill to downgrade diplomatic and economic relations with Britain after London increased sanctions on Tehran over its nuclear program.
"This unwarranted move will do nothing to help the regime address their growing isolation or international concerns about their nuclear program and human rights record," the foreign ministry said. "If the Iranian government acts on this, we will respond robustly in consultation with our international partners."
