TEHRAN, October 23 - British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Britain would work to maintain the nuclear agreement with the “great nation” of Iran, which the Trump administration has threatened to undermine.

Britain says to work for maintaining Iran’s nuclear dealTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Speaking at Chatham House, he claimed the Iran deal proved crucial at a time when the country had been "only months away" from producing a nuclear weapon.

Johnson said Trump had not "junked" the deal and with "determination and courage" the joint comprehensive plan of action (JCPOA) deal could be preserved.

He claimed that there are concerns about Iran's support for Hezbollah and Yemeni Houthi and its measures in Syria, Financial Times reported.

"But that does not mean for one minute that we should write Iran off, or that we should refuse to engage with Iran or that we should show disrespect to its people," he said.

"On the contrary, we should continue to work to demonstrate to that population that they will be better off under this deal and the path of re-engagement that it prescribes."
