UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson stated that Washington's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal made no difference to Britain's assessment of the agreement, since "as long as Iran abides by the agreement, then Britain will remain a party to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)."
Johnson stressed that Britain had no intention of walking away from the Iran deal.
Johnson went on to wondering how Donald Trump was going to seek a comprehensive and sustainable solution to the Iranian nuclear program, and the president's pledge in the wake of his decision to withdraw, which would suit all sides.
"I have no problems with this goal, but the question is how the US proposes to achieve it? Now that the Trump administration has withdrawn from the JCPOA, it is Washington's responsibility to describe how Washington plans to reach a new agreement that would address our common concerns and that must necessarily include Iran, China and Russia, as well as states in the region. Britain is ready to support this task, but in the meantime, we will try to preserve the success achieved through the JCPOA," the Minister noted.
In 2015, Iran and the six international mediators (Russia, the US, Britain, China, France, Germany) reached a historic agreement on the country. The JCPOA stipulated the removal of sanctions imposed on Tehran in exchange for Iran preserving its nuclear program peacefully.
