Iran has no current plans to close embassies or downgrade diplomatic ties with foreign nations, foreign ministry spokesman Hassan Ghashghavi told reporters on Monday.

“There is no plan at the moment to close any embassy or downgrade ties with them,” Ghashghavi said at his weekly news conference when asked if Tehran planned to close the British embassy.

Iran has arrested a number local British embassy staff, accusing them of being involved in the unrest that rocked the nation after the disputed re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
