UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called on US President Donald Trump to replace the Iran nuclear deal with a new agreement so that Tehran does not develop an atomic weapon.

European nations have said they still support the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was brokered in 2015, despite Iran announcing it would abandon limitations on enriching uranium.

"If we're going to get rid of it, let's replace it and let's replace it with the Trump deal," Mr Johnson told the BBC on Tuesday. "That would be a great way forward."

""If you get rid of this nuclear deal, the JCPOA, it's what Trump wants. My point to our American friends is, look, somehow or other, we've got to stop the Iranians acquiring a nuclear weapon," he added.

Mr Trump pulled the US out of the JCPOA in 2018, branding it "the worst deal ever negotiated".

The US President said he wished to do a new deal with Iran following the recent escalation of tensions over the killing of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani.

The British prime minister called for calm in the 30-minute televised interview with Britain's national broadcaster.

"I don't want a military conflict between us, the United States and Iran, let's dial this thing down," Mr Johnson said.
