The Independent:

Theresa May has sided with her EU counterparts urging Donald Trump not to abandon the historic Iranian nuclear deal, as it is “vitally important for regional security”.

Highlighting the importance of the deal – days ahead of an anticipated announcement from the US President on whether or not to certify the 2015 agreement – Downing Street said the Prime Minister had spoken with Mr Trump in a phone call.

“The PM reaffirmed the UK’s strong commitment to the deal alongside our European partners, saying it was vitally important for regional security,” a Number 10 spokesman said.

They added: “The PM stressed that it was important that the deal was carefully monitored and properly enforced. Mrs May and the president also discussed the need for the UK, US and others to work together to counter destabilising Iranian activity in the region.

“The PM and president agreed that their teams should remain in contact ahead of the decision on recertification.
