Iran parliament votes to reduce ties with Britain

TEHRAN - Iran's parliament approved a draft bill on Sunday to reduce diplomatic and economic relations with Britain after London increased sanctions on Tehran over its nuclear program, the official IRNA news agency reported.
In the 290-strong parliament, 179 voted in favor, four against and 11 abstained. The bill obliges the government to reduce ties within two weeks, a move that would force the ambassador out and leave the British embassy to be run by a charge d'affaires.
