British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump, to find an alternative to the nuclear deal with Iran, expressing the hope that no further escalation of tension would happen because of Tehran.
"If we are going to get rid of it, let's find an alternative, for him and for him to replace Trump," the British prime minister said of the nuclear agreement signed by Western countries with Iran. "It will go a long way," Reuters reported.
He continued, saying: "I do not want a military conflict between us, between the United States and Iran, let us alleviate the matter," stressing the need to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
Johnson denied that London had any connection with the killing of the commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Qassem Soleimani, who was killed by an American strike in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
Iran and the six major powers - China, Russia, the United States, France, Germany and Britain - signed an agreement in 2015 guaranteeing the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program, in exchange for the abolition of all sanctions on Iran.
In May 2018, the United States withdrew from the nuclear agreement with Iran in a speech by US President Donald Trump, which heightened tensions between Washington and Tehran.
