Iran News - - FRONT PAGE -

LON­DON (Dis­patches) - Bri­tish For­eign Sec­re­tary Boris John­son has urged all par­ties to up­hold their com­mit­ments to the Iran nu­clear deal, de­scrib­ing it “a his­toric achieve­ment”.

John­son’s re­marks fol­lowed phone calls with U.S. Sec­re­tary of State Rex Tiller­son and Ira­nian For­eign Min­is­ter Javad Zarif.

How­ever, U.S. com­mit­ment to main­tain­ing the deal struck un­der for­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama has been cast into doubt by cur­rent Amer­i­can leader Don­ald Trump who is op­posed to the in­ter­na­tional com­pro­mise pack­age.

His ad­min­is­tra­tion plans to an­nounce its de­ci­sion on the 2015 nu­clear deal be­tween Iran and six ma­jor world pow­ers. Trump is ex­pected to de­cer­tify the agree­ment.

How­ever, Bri­tish re­mains sup­port­ive of the deal, which took 13 years to ham­mer out. “The nu­clear deal was a cru­cial agree­ment that neu­tral­ized Iran’s nu­clear threat,” John­son said on Wednesday.
