Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Speaker Ali Larijani has ordered the Foreign Policy and National Security Commission to reconsider a motion to revise Iran's relations with the UK.

The order came after Member of Parliament from the central city of Mahallat, Alireza Salimi called for the motion to be revived in response to latest British anti-Iran hostilities as far as the issue of Iran's peaceful nuclear activities is concerned.

It was recently reported that British military authorities are considering contingency plans for potential military invasion of Iran.

According to the reports, Britain had said it would endorse any U.S. action plan aimed at launching an invasion on Iran amid decisions made in Washington to fast-forward missile strikes at the Islamic Republic's nuclear facilities, The Guardian had reported.

MP Salimi urged the parliament to put the motion on its agenda urgently and make a final decision on how to reduce the level of Tehran-London relations.

In response, the Parliament Speaker ordered the Foreign Policy and National Security Commission to refer the motion to an open session of the parliament immediately.

Meanwhile, a member of the parliament managing board said that the Foreign Policy Commission has discussed the issue of Gholhak Garden, located in northern Tehran and occupied by the British embassy, at its morning session on Sunday.

Hassan Sobhaninia said the Commission has concluded that the issue should be followed up seriously to regain the Garden as soon as possible.

He added that the session was attended by Brigadier Bagher-zadeh, the head of the Foundation for Preserving and Publishing the Values of the Sacred Defence, who discussed the strategies, which could pave the way for recapturing the Gholhak Garden.

"Brigadier Bagher-zadeh reiterated in his report to the Commission that the UK government does not have any documents to legally prove its ownership over the Gholhak Garden. All the documents provided by the British embassy in Tehran are fake.

A Qajar Dynasty (1796-1925) ruler has granted the property to the then British envoy to be used as a summer residence. There is a letter on which it is reiterated that the property belongs to Iran.

Therefore, the UK government has no real documents to prove its claim. The Commission would follow up the issue seriously through legal channels", Sobhaninia said.

In 2006, 162 Iranian lawmakers demanded an inquiry on the question of the ownership of Gholhak Garden in a letter to the then parliament speaker, Gholam Ali Haddad-Adel.

The inquiry heard that the ownership of the Garden belongs to Iran, although it has been given to the British embassy by the Qajar Dynasty to be used as a summer residence.

Mohammad Shah Qajar granted the Garden to the UK government, but the ownership came to an end during the reign of Reza Shah Pahlavi, however the complex continued to serve as a summer residence and currently is the year round residence of the British ambassador.

Again in 2007, an Iranian parliamentary group investigated the related documents and concluded that the documents provided by the UK government over the ownership of the Garden carried no value.

A campaign group comprised of several volunteer lawyers is pursuing the case of the ownership of Iran over the Gholhak Garden.
