Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt took part in the leadership debate organised by the Sun newspaper and TalkRadio

Boris Johnson rules out supporting the USA in possible military action in Iran.

The two contenders to be prime minister were facing each other in a leadership debate hosted by The Sun, a United Kingdom tabloid newspaper.

Asked about the debate, Grieve said of Johnson that "when challenged and confronted he radicalised even further and excluded any possibility of trying to negotiate some way out of the backstop. the consequences of that makes the choices starker and starker". " "Diplomacy must be the best way forward", Johnson said".

The leading candidate to become Britain's next Prime Minister, lawmaker Boris Johnson, said on Monday he would not now back the United States if it took military action against Iran. Hunt said that the comments were "totally offensive".

"I don't think they are looking to do any kind of war, I really don't".

However, the UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt also warns that the USA and Iran risk triggering an "accidental war".

He said there was a "small window" of hope for preventing the worldwide agreement aimed at stopping Tehran gaining nuclear weapons from unravelling.

"We must keep control of common sense", he said.

Despite being loaded on offense, the Cardinals have been inefficient in 2019 and rank near the bottom-10 in runs and home runs. Louis has title-winning pedigree and are loaded offensively, but thus far simply haven’t delivered consistent results.

"Iran is still a good year away from developing a nuclear bomb".

In a statement on Sunday, Hunt will meet European Union Foreign Ministers in Brussels on Monday to raise concerns about Iran breaching some of its commitments, reports the BBC.

He tweeted: "You are either on path to a nuclearised Middle East or not..."

On Sunday, Tehran reiterated it would sit down and negotiate with the U.S. if Trump lifted the sanctions and returned to the nuclear deal.

Johnson's latest intervention comes against a backdrop of heightened tensions in the Gulf. "' Both the US government and Iran have said they are not seeking a war".

During the ministers' arrivals, Linas Linkevičius from Lithuania said that saving the Iran nuclear deal depended on the actors' behaviour.

Hunt said that while he agreed with the USA on finding a long-term solution to Iran's regional influence, he disagreed on Washington's current approach. He added that there was a "small window" of hope for preventing the Iran nuclear deal from unraveling entirely, following Donald Trump's decision previous year to axe it.

While the Europeans say they still support the agreement, which lifted sanctions in return for Iran curbing its nuclear programme, in practice they have found it hard to get round the USA measures.
