TEHRAN, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- Iran and Britain agreed to introduce charge d'affaires within the next two weeks, the official IRNA news agency reported on Wednesday.
The agreement was reached between Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Majid Takht-Ravanchi and his British counterpart Simon Gass in Geneva.
On Oct. 8, Iranian foreign ministry said the two countries had agreed to appoint a non-resident charge d'affaires in an attempt to resume bilateral ties.
In November 2011, thousands of Iranian demonstrators broke into two British embassy compounds following Iran's decision to downgrade its diplomatic ties with Britain in response to London's financial sanctions against Tehran.
Britain then shut down its embassy in Tehran and ordered the immediate closure of the Iranian embassy in London.
