British foreign minister visits Iran

(London) – British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt was to visit Iran for the first time for talks about the nuclear deal and freeing UK nationals held in Iranian jails.

Iran has been abiding by the terms of its nuclear deal with global powers, the latest report from the UN atomic watchdog indicated last week, days after fresh US sanctions hit the country.

US President Donald Trump has dramatically increased pressure on Tehran, withdrawing from an international agreement aimed at ending its nuclear programme and introducing several rounds of unilateral sanctions.

Hunt´s visit is the first by a Western foreign minister since the United States withdrew from the nuclear deal.

“The Iran nuclear deal remains a vital component of stability in the Middle East by eliminating the threat of a nuclearised Iran,” Hunt said, in a statement issued in London.

“It needs 100-percent compliance though to survive. We will stick to our side of the bargain as long as Iran does.

“But we also need to see an end to destabilising activity by Iran in the rest of the region if we are going to tackle the root causes of the challenges the region faces.”
