British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said in a phone call that Iran must comply with the terms of a nuclear deal agreed with major powers and cannot be allowed to acquire a nuclear weapon, Reuters reported.
Iran said on Sunday it was taking a further step back from its commitment to abandon limits on enriching uranium after Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander Qasem Soleimani was killed by a US drone strike in Iraq.
“The leaders discussed the situation in Iraq following the death of Qasem Soleimani. They agreed on the importance of reducing tensions and finding a diplomatic way through the current crisis,” a statement from Johnson’s office said.
“They agreed that Iran cannot be allowed to acquire a nuclear weapon and must comply with the terms of the nuclear deal.”
