Great Britain conducted a ceremony in Tehran, Iran and in London where both nations reopened their respective embassies. From Al Jazeera:

British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has presided over the reopening of UK's embassy in Tehran, four years after it was trashed by a mob.

Hammond's visit on Sunday is the first by a British foreign secretary since 2003, as Tehran's ties warm with the West.

Hammond watched the British flag being raised in the garden of the opulent 19th century building while the national anthem played.

The British foreign secretary said the ceremony marked the start of a "long" and "exciting" journey, calling Iran an "important country in a strategically important but volatile region."

"Today's ceremony marks the end of one phase in the relationship between our two countries and the start of a new one - one that I believe offers the promise of better," he said.

"Last month’s historic nuclear agreement was another milestone, and showed the power of diplomacy, conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect, to solve shared challenges.

I must admit, I'm a bit envious that our nation can't behave like adults, reestablishing a relationship that will be undoubtedly, mutually beneficial. But you can imagine the collective fake outrage that will come from the sociopaths in the Republican Party, as well as the DINOs who cater to Bibi Netanyahu. Let's hope we can accomplish this same feat before the Obama Presidency is finished. Peace and prosperity are always the better option.
