US determined to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons – Trump

LONDON, US President Donald Trump on Tuesday reiterated his country’s determination to prevent Iran from developing or acquiring nuclear weapons.

During a press conference after talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump underlined the need to ensure the cessation of Iran’s activities in support of terrorism and destabilizing the security of the Middle East, stressing the determination of his administration to achieve this.

Trump, meanwhile, ruled out his country’s need to reduce its intelligence cooperation with the UK because of the lack of clarity about the latter’s position on Huawei’s use of the fifth-generation telecommunications network.

For her part, May noted that her talks with the US President touched on a number of issues related to bilateral relations, especially trade, as well as international issues including Iran and the developments of the case of (Huawei) China.

May acknowledged that her government disagreed with President Trump’s administration on the nature of measures to be taken to ensure that Iran did not acquire nuclear weapons; however, she stressed that “differences between allies are normal.” On Monday, the US president began a three-day official visit to Britain, during which he met with Queen Elizabeth II and chaired a forum for business leaders and representatives from the two countries on Tuesday morning.
