Asked what suggestions the British government would be making to the USA administration about the way ahead in dealing with Iran, Johnson talked about the idea of a follow-on agreement that would preserve the central pillars of the JCPOA while addressing other issues beyond the nuclear programme. It has delivered three planes so far.
European governments want to salvage the deal, and Iran said it will continue to comply for now.
The Iranian deal, also known as the P5+1, was signed by Tehran and six other superpowers, which includes the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - the U.S., Russia, France, China, the U.K. - plus Germany and the European Union.
This news is also "bleak" for Americans that are still being held in Iran. "We were expected to have such a prediction either". "Today we have definitive proof that this promise was a lie", he said, referring to Iran's pledge to roll back its nuclear program.
Now, clearly, President Trump takes a different view.
France vows pushback against US sanctions on Iran
Theresa May and Donald Trump have agreed talks are needed to discuss how USA sanctions will affect companies operating in Iran . The investors are anxious that renewed sanctions against Iran , a major oil producer, could lead to supply disruptions.
President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of the USA on Tuesday. This triggered speculations in media that the aviation giants would suffer $39 billion as a result of lost Iran deals.
They urged the United States not to hinder other parties from fully implementing the deal. Trump's hawkish rhetoric about Iran as "the leading state sponsor of terror" and his warning that "the USA no longer makes empty threats" immediately makes the Middle East less stable.
"We have made it very clear that if Iran acquires a nuclear capability we will do everything we can to do the same".
"I hope [the US withdrawal] not a setback for peace, in any case [French President] Emmanuel Macron offered [US] President [Donald] Trump a political initiative which is still on the table and which he didn't reject in last night's comments".
China is strongly invested in the agreement, and it's unclear what effect Trump's widely-criticized decision to re-impose sanctions will have on its relationship with Tehran. That's because the US will reimpose sanctions on Iran's economy and its oil exports. The foreign ministries of Russian Federation and China have said the same. I'm sure the European governments will be looking at all the measures they can take to keep that business going.
What is the Iran nuclear deal?
The president added: "If they do, there will be very severe effect". "We will have discussions at the European level".
