UK Prime Minister’s spokesperson said that the country was exploring mechanisms to facilitate trade with Iran, mentioning UK's support for expansion of trade ties with Iran. 

The spokesperson, who is not named by convention, made the remarks during a press conference in response to IRNA correspondent’s question whether the UK, as a member of the Iran nuclear deal, was willing to remove obstacles against expansion of its trade ties with Iran.

Asked if the UK government takes any measure to facilitate trade with Iran for the companies interested, Johnson’s spokesperson confirmed positively, saying that London was long supporting legitimate trade with Iran and continued working towards mechanisms to facilitate the process.

However, the official gave an important assessment of resuming implementation of the JCPOA and reaching in a deal in Vienna to remove the aforementioned obstacles.

The spokesperson said that progress in this issue is the best path forward which would turn not only trade ties but also all dimension of bilateral ties between Iran and the UK into a secure place.
