UK to discuss with France, Germany ways to protect firms after US exits Iran deal – Johnson

Britain’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will discuss ways to shield companies doing business with Iran at a meeting with counterparts from France and Germany on Tuesday, Reuters reports. “We are going to have a conversation about what we can do to help UK firms, European firms have some confidence that they can still do business,” Johnson said. US President Donald Trump decided last week to renege on the 2015 nuclear accord between Tehran and world powers. The US could also re-impose sanctions against Tehran, with penalties against any foreign firms involved in business there.
