UK gov’t shocked at Royal Mail decision: Envoy

London, April 12, IRNA – Iran’s Ambassador in London Hamid Baeidinejad said on Friday that recent statement of the Royal Mail to stop sending parcels to Iran has shocked the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Postal Company.

In a tweet on Friday, he added that the office and the company have pledged to seriously pursue rectification of the decision.

He also ensured the dear Iranian countrymen if the problem is not solved until Monday, Iran’s Embassy will make arrangements for receiving the Iran-bound parcels and delivering them freely to the Iranian post.
