Following Donald Trump’s call on the UK to break away from the Iran nuclear deal, Liberal Democrat Acting Leader Ed Davey said:
“Trump’s call for the UK to break away from the Iran nuclear deal is dangerous, and Britain should reject it.
“It’s time for Boris Johnson to decide where his values lie. It is essential the UK stands up for international law and human rights. He must not allow the UK to be used as the lapdog of President Trump, and should remember that the Iran nuclear deal was signed by an American President, whose strategy of diplomatic engagement worked with Iran.
“Rather than rejecting the nuclear deal, Britain should be calling on Trump to get back to the table. With our European allies, we must do all we can to de-escalate this situation and return to dialogue with Iran.”
