London, The United Kingdom affirmed its full support with the United States to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapon.

This came in a statement issued by the UK government yesterday on the occasion of a visit currently paid by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to Washington.

"On so many of the world's foreign policy challenges the UK and US are in lockstep. We have seen this recently with the response to the poisonings in Salisbury, our strong response to Assad's use of chemical weapons in Syria, and the effort to de-nuclearize North Korea," the UK government said.

"The UK, US, and European partners are also united in our effort to tackle the kind of Iranian behavior that makes the Middle East region less secure, its cyber activities, its support for groups like Hezbollah, and its dangerous missile programme, which is arming Houthi militias in Yemen," the statement added.
