Norway reopens embassy in Iran

Norway has asked Iranian authorities to guarantee the safety of its diplomats.

Oslo: Norway has reopened its embassy in Tehran after a 24-hour closure due to security concerns
following the attack by protesters on Britain`s diplomatic mission there.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hilde Steinfeld says the premises opened as usual today morning, after authorities had made a new evaluation of the security situation.
Norway has asked Iranian authorities to guarantee the safety of its diplomats and Iran`s ambassador to Norway is due to report to the Foreign Ministry in Oslo later today.

The embassy was closed yesterday, a day after protesters stormed the British diplomatic facility in what apparently began as a state-approved show of anger over Western sanctions linked to Iran`s nuclear programme.
