UK Urges Trump to Stay in Nuclear Deal

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Monday backed US President Donald Trump’s approach to the North Korean crisis, but urged him to stick to the Iran nuclear deal. The top diplomat said the US president had an “absolute duty” to prepare “any option” in response to North Korea’s nuclear threats, Press Association reported.  But he said no one wants a military response to the crisis and suggested that the Iran process represented the kind of “diplomatic imagination” that could provide a solution. The remarks came after Trump on Oct. 13 decertified the 2015 pact with Iran and repeated his threat to pull out of the landmark deal entirely. In a speech to the Chatham House foreign affairs think tank, Johnson claimed the Iran deal proved crucial at a time when the country had allegedly been “only months away” from producing a nuclear weapon. Tehran denies the charge that its nuclear program might have had military aspects. The foreign secretary said Trump had not “junked” the accord and with “determination and courage” the deal could be preserved.
