The leading candidate to replace British Prime Minister Theresa May has said the JCPOA has been a good guarantor of stability in Iran's relations certainly with the EU and with America.

Iran Press/Europe: Boris Johnson, who could be Britain's prime minister by the end of the month, in a television interview with Reuters on July 2, 2019 said, “I would urge again the Iranian government to think very, very hard about scrapping the JCPOA and breaching their commitments on the Iran nuclear deal.

"It has been a good guarantor of stability in relations certainly with the EU and with America and I think they should stick with it and I think it would be a great mistake now for Iran to abandon that approach of restraint and go for enrichment of nuclear materials I think that would be a serious error,” he added.

When asked if he would move closer to the US position on Iran, Johnson stated: “I think what is certainly the case is that the JCPOA is looking increasingly frail and I continue to believe that engaging with Iran is the right way forward for our country and for the region.” 101/211/213
