Britain urges US to stick with Iran nuclear deal

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Britain has urged the United States not to abandon the nuclear deal with Iran, after Israel released documents claiming Tehran had lied “big time” about its nuclear weapons programme.

Boris Johnson said the deal was still vitally important to keep Iran’s activities in check. But Donald Trump has signalled he could walk away from the agreement by May 12, unless there are significant changes.
