U.K. Will Seek to Soften Trump Opposition to Iran Nuclear Deal

  • Foreign Secretary Johnson says Britain committed to accord
  • Vodafone, Lotus have done deals in Iran amid increased trade

U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said he’ll seek to work with the administration of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to “make a success” of the 2015 deal to stop Iran from being able to develop nuclear weapons.

Trump criticized the deal during his election campaign and has chosen opponents of the agreement to fill senior positions in his White House team, leading to uncertainty about its future. In a speech on March 21, he said both that he would scrap the deal and strictly enforce it.
