'Trump deal' could replace 2015 Iran nuclear accord, Boris Johnson says | CNBC |

Johnson said the U.K. would come under pressure to jettison the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran - signed between Iran and the U.S., U.K. Germany, France, Russia and China - but said the deal, known formally as the JCPOA (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) should be replaced in order to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

"We're going to come under pressure, everybody will say, `well you've got to get rid of this nuclear deal, the JCPOA,' that's what Trump wants. My point to our American friends is, look, somehow or other we've got to stop the Iranians acquiring a nuclear weapon, that's what the JCPOA does, but if we're going to get rid of it, then we need a replacement," Johnson told BBC Breakfast on Tuesday.
