Iran reviews relations with Britain: TV
Iran will review ties with Britain in a dozen fields, state television quoted Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki as saying on Monday.

Britain is one of the main Western powers often accused of plotting against Iran-- charges it has denied.

"Iran to review ties with Britain in 12 working fields," English-language Press TV said, giving no further details.

State broadcaster IRIB quoted Mottaki as saying Iran had relations with Britain in 10-12 fields.

"All these fields of relations (with Britain) are under study and each field would be reviewed in accordance with the country's national interests ... and at the end the government will make the final decision," Mottaki said.

Last week, Iranian media said dozens of members of parliament had put forward a proposal to cut relations with Britain.

In late December, Iran summoned the British ambassador in Tehran and Mottaki warned Britain, calling on it to stop interfering in Iranian affairs.

The United States cut relations with Tehran shortly after Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution that toppled the U.S.-backed shah.
