Sir Kim Darroch Accused Trump of “Diplomatic Vandalism” for Ending Iran Deal
July 14, 2019 (EIRNS)—The Mail on Sunday has published more cables from His Excellency Pompous Fool, aka former U.K. Ambassador to Washington Sir Kim Darroch, in which Sir Kim said that Trump pulled out of the 2015 JCPOA Iran nuclear deal for “personality reasons” because the deal was originally negotiated by Obama. Darroch sent the diplomatic telegram to the Foreign Office shortly after then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson had travelled to Washington to talk Trump out of withdrawing the Iran deal. The disclosure of this telegram occurs as the British gear up their actions to raise the level of tensions in the Persian Gulf.
The release of the new telegram comes just after the Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Neil Basu threatened the Daily Mail and other news British organizations with criminal prosecution for publishing the Darroch telegrams. Basu has been rebuked by several Tory MPs, including incumbent Foreign Secretary Jeremey Hunt, for attacking press freedom.
