Iran urges more active British diplomacy after Cameron win

Britain's Prime Minister and Leader of the Conservative Party David Cameron and his wife Samantha are applauded by staff upon entering 10 Downing Street in London on May 8, 2015A top adviser to the Iranian president called on Saturday for a more active British foreign policy in the Middle East after Prime Minister David Cameron's upset election victory. The remarks by Hamid Aboutalebi, President Hassan Rouhani's deputy chief of staff for political affairs, come as six major powers, including Britain, seek a nuclear deal with the Islamic republic. Aboutalebi complained that in the negotiations that led to a framework accord last month Britain had taken a back seat, and called for a more active role in the efforts under way to reach a full agreement by June 30. "British policy in the region and on the nuclear issue in recent years has been far from the capacities of that country and has been overshadowed by American policy," he tweeted.
