TEHRAN, Oct. 11 (MNA) – In a post on his Twitter page, UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Boris Johnson reaffirmed Britain’s support for preserving the nuclear deal.

“UK strives to preserve nuclear deal,” posted on his Twitter page, Boris Johnson, the UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, on Wednesday some hours after meeting with Ali Akbar Salehi, the Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), in London.

Repeating the same exhausted accusations against Iran, he ended the tweet with “Iran must play its part & curb disruptive regional role.”

On Monday, Sigmar Gabriel, the German Foreign Minister, said that the security situation may get worse if Washington withdraws from the Iranian nuclear deal, adding that it causes concerns.

In the meanwhile, on the same day, French Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Agnes Romatet-Espagne told a daily briefing that France will exercise prudence in reaction to Washington actions against Iran, reported Reuters. "In the context of regional instability, France is vigilant on any actions that could exacerbate the current crises," she said when asked if Paris backed Washington.

Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Ali Akbar Salehi, who landed in London late Tuesday night at the official invitation of UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Boris Johnson, held talks with the British top diplomat this morning on expansion of bilateral cooperation.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA),  commonly referred to as the Iran Nuclear Deal, was signed on July 14, 2015 in Vienna by Iran and the 5+1 group of countries comprised of US, Russia, China, France and UK plus Germany after years of diplomatic work.
