Last night, October 10, Prime Minister Theresa may called the President of the United States Donald Trump and urged him not to break a nuclear agreement with Iran. About it, referring to its representative, writes the local edition of The Telegraph.
The British government tried to explain to the American leader that this deal is “vital to regional security,” and assured him that her country, along with other signatories intend to comply with the provisions of the agreement.
As expected, this week trump will announce a decision on Iran, criticizing Tehran for ballistic missile tests. The Congress will have two months to decide whether to back sanctions against the country if the President will criticize the deal and say that Iran is not fulfilling the agreement. Anonymous top officials in Washington argue that the agreement with Tehran will be broken.
“The Prime Minister stressed the importance of careful monitoring (of how the transaction is carried out, – ed.) and proper performance of the agreement,” said Mei.
The Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain Boris Johnson called American colleague Rex Tillerson to tell that the Iran deal “makes the world a safer place”.
