Envoy: Britain supports nuclear deal, backs business with Iran
Britain's Ambassador to Tehran Nicholas Hopton underlined his country's support for the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, and said London is helping the British companies interested in cooperation with Tehran.
"The government in London fully supports the British firms which interact with Iran, and Britain is fully committed to the success of the nuclear deal and this position has not changed," Hopton said on Tuesday.
"We like to witness the British and European firms to welcome trade with Iran," he added.
"We are witnessing a steady growth in trade and contacts between the Iranian and British banks and we expect more progress too," Hopton said.
In relevant remarks last July, the European Union (EU) announced that economic engagement with Iran has been ongoing since a multilateral nuclear deal with the country despite “existing challenges,” an apparent acknowledgement of the United States’ attempts to throw a wrench into the works.
