Britain's Junior Foreign Minister Alistair Burt was to arrive in Tehran on Friday to discuss the future of the  international nuclear deal, in the first visit to the country by a British minister since US President Donald Trump withdrew from the landmark 2015 agreement.

His visit comes as the European Union tries to keep the deal alive by ensuring that Iran will benefit financially from sticking with the accord.

"As long as Iran meets its commitments under the deal, we remain committed to it as we believe it is the best way to ensure a safe, secure future for the region," said Burt in a statement ahead of his visit, Reuters reported.
