LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday referred to as on U.S. President Donald Trump to exchange the Iranian nuclear cope with his personal new settlement to make sure that the Islamic Republic didn’t get an atomic weapon.

“If we’re going to get rid of it, let’s replace it and let’s replace it with the Trump deal,” Johnson mentioned of the 2015 nuclear arms management cope with Tehran. “That would be a great way forward.”

“President Trump is a great deal maker, by his own account. Let’s work together to replace the JCPOA and get the Trump deal instead,” Johnson advised the BBC.

Under the deal brokered in 2015, generally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iran agreed with China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States, to limit its nuclear program.

But in 2018, Trump pulled out of the deal. European powers have repeatedly mentioned they nonetheless help the deal although Tehran introduced earlier this month it will abandon limitations on enriching uranium, an extra blow to the deal.

“If you get rid of this nuclear deal, the JCPOA, it’s what Trump wants. My point to our American friends is, look, somehow or other you’ve got to stop the Iranians acquiring a nuclear weapon,” Johnson mentioned.

“From the American perspective, it’s a flawed agreement, it expires, plus it was negotiated by President (Barack) Obama. From their point of view it has many, many faults.”

Trump is assured he might nonetheless renegotiate a brand new nuclear cope with Tehran, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway mentioned earlier this month after Iran introduced it will retreat farther from the 2015 nuclear pact.

“I don’t want a military conflict between us, the United States and Iran, let’s dial this thing down,” Johnson mentioned.
