Britain said on Monday it had revived diplomatic relations with Iran and appointed a non-resident charge d'affaires, two years after an angry mob ransacked the British embassy in Tehran.

Britain's Foreign Office said Ajay Sharma, currently the head of the ministry's Iran department, will take up the post immediately.

Iran appointed a new charge d'affaires to Britain to revive diplomatic ties that were broken off after radical students stormed the British embassy in Tehran in 2011,Mehr news agency said.

"Today the Islamic Republic has appointed Mohammas Hassan Habibollah as charge d'affaires to Britain and has introduced him to the British side," the agency said, quoting the Foreign Ministry.
