British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called on Iran to end its confrontation with the United States and reassure the country of the Tehran nuclear deal.
Downing Street spokesman said Johnson called on Iran to put an end to all hostilities and told Britain to look at the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers as the best solution to prevent Iran from having nuclear weapons.
According to him, in a 20-minute telephone conversation with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Johnson sent a clear message to Iran to ease the tension.
Meanwhile, the Iranian President’s office in a statement said Hassan told Boris Johnson in a telephone conversation that all measures taken by Iran in response to a US unilateral decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal in May 2018 could be withdrawn.
Hassan also reiterated that the attack on the US military base in Iraq was a response to the death of his top military leader, Qassem Soleimani, killed in a US drone attack last week and as a legitimate act of self-defense.
According to the statement, Hassan asked Johnson to reconsider his perception of Qassem, which the British Prime Minister said was a death that he would not regret.
“Without Qassem’s efforts to fight ISIS terrorists, you would not have enjoyed peace in London”, he said.
