British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called for a “new” nuclear deal with Iran, winning approval from US President Donald Trump but raising questions if London will now follow Washington in abandoning the existing agreement. The UK was one of the six countries that signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Tehran in 2015, a deal intended to limit Iran’s nuclear program to peaceful research with UN blessing. Trump unilaterally withdrew the US from the JCPOA in March 2018, but other signatories have remained committed to the deal on paper – until now. “Whatever your objections to the old nuclear deal with Iran, it’s time now to move forward and do a new deal,” Johnson told Sky News on Monday, ahead of the UN General Assembly session in New York. He added that the UK was “trying to bring people together and de-escalate tensions.”
