UK foreign secretary defends JCPOA

Politics - The UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson during his speech at the International Institute for Strategic Studies Manama Dialogue defended the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action inked between Iran and G5+1(US, UK, France, Russia, China plus Germany).

According to the UK media on Saturday, he insisted that it had been worth spending 12 years negotiating the nuclear deal with Iran.

The UK foreign secretary was quoted by the Herald Newspaper as saying that 'I think we must build on this foundation and try to develop a better relationship with Tehran'.

He added 'but that can only happen if Iran plays by the same rules and exercises its influence in diplomacy and by dialogue.'

Speaking about the Saudi attack on Yemeni people, the official added: 'But I must also share my profound concerns, which I'm sure is universal in this room, about the present suffering of the people of Yemen.'

'I think we can all agree on this key point, that force alone will not bring about a stable Yemen, and that's why we in London have been working so hard with all our partners to drive that political process forward,' he said.
