Former foreign secretary Jack Straw said Friday that Britain and the United States had been a "malign force" in Iran in the past, after a relationship-building visit to Tehran.Straw and three other British members of parliament visited Iran this week amid a thawing of relations between Britain and the Islamic Republic, after ties were severed in 2011 when hardline Islamists ransacked the British embassy compound in Tehran. Straw was involved in intensive negotiations with Rouhani over Iran's disputed nuclear programme in the early 2000s when the two men were respectively foreign minister and chief nuclear negotiator.
