Mr Carter praised the work Boris Johnson has done in reducing the tension between all parties. However, the MP for Warrington South did state that the situation in the Middle East is “particularly volatile”. Mr Carter told that a new nuclear deal with Iran is something “we have to address” in order to facilitate a future relationship. 

Mr Carter said: “I think it is the case of looking at a deal that works for American, that works for Britain that works for Europe and that engages with Iran.

“What we don’t want to see is Iran as a state having nuclear weapons.

“That is something we have to address in a new shaped deal.

“The Middle east situation is particularly volatile and I’m pleased the Prime Minister has taken steps to encourage all parties to de-escalate.

“The best way to solve the problem that we have in Iran is to work in a rationale reasonable manner and de-escalation is really critical.

“I think Boris Johnson working with colleagues in Europe and President Trump is in a good place to facilitate that future relationship.”

Last week the Prime Minister called for the “flawed” Iran nuclear deal to be replaced with Donald Trump’s deal.

Mr Johnson pointed out that the current JCPOA’s main problem is that it is “flawed” from the American perspective because it was negotiated by former US President Barack Obama.

“The problem with the JCPOA is that from the American perspective it is a flawed agreement and it expires.

“Plus it was negotiated by President Obama, from their point of view it has many faults.

“If we are going to get rid of it let’s replace it and let’s replace it with the Trump deal, that is what we need to see.

“I think that would be a great way forward.”
