US and UK determined to make sure Iran does not develop nuclear weapons: Trump
US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that his country and the UK are determined to make sure that Iran does not develop nuclear weapons.
Trump was addressing “pressing threats” that the two countries were facing, including the spread of nuclear weapons, in a joint press conference with outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May.
Trump also said that the alliance between the US and the UK is the “greatest alliance the world has ever known.”
May praised the “precious and profound” US-UK special relationship and said that the two countries “must do everything” to avoid escalation in Iran.
She also said that both countries want to reach the same goals in the Iranian matter.
The press conference happened following a meeting for the two leaders at May’s Downing Street residence as part of Trump’s state visit to Britain.
