He said, “I was contacted by the Iranian ambassador before the summer break who told me that Iran was willing to sign a contract for beef with this country worth €2bn if we were willing to re-establish the embassy in Tehran.

“The Iranians even offered a building in Tehran if the Taoiseach did decide to re- establish the embassy,” said the Anti-Austerity Alliance People Before Profit TD for Dún Laoghaire.
