    Johnson's dangerous decision 

    Will Washington fool London again?

    A recent visit by US National Security Adviser John Bolton and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Britain's exit from the European Union showed clearly that Washington was trying to impose some of its demands on London. This is something that Boris Johnson will probably agree with. Better yet, London will once again become a victim of US policies in the international system.

    Boris and the English Job

    A new book, "The English Job", by former British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw documented Iran's long (and merited) history of distrust of the British motives and actions. I note that the new British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, comes from the heart of the British or (as better known in Iran) English ’Establishment’ which was largely responsible for the decisions and actions which generated this mistrust.

    Boris Johnson and the mystery of leaving Europe

    TEHRAN-Boris Johnson has become a controversial politician in Britain in recent days. Many UK analysts believe that Boris Johnson himself does not know exactly what he wants to do with the EU's exit plan! Johnson's contradictory statements and stances have strengthened this trend. In any case, even if Johnson is present at the head of the British political and administrative equations, it would seem that we are witnessing a more complicated political situation in this country. Here are some of the latest analyzes and news on Boris Johnson:

    Will UK leave the European Union this year?

    The story of Britain's departure from the European Union has become a complex puzzle for European analysts. On the other hand, there are secret and obvious attempts to hold a referendum on the withdrawal of Britain from Europe. However, some analysts believe that, if Boris Johnson is at the head of the British political and administrative equations, this issue will come about (British withdrawal from Europe). Brexit has long been a foggy point in the security, political, social, and economic equations in Britain and the United Europe.

    Britain is humiliated by Trump

    TEHRAN - In an interventionist statement, the president of the United States has called for the presence of former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson at the head of the British political and administrative equations. This obnoxious demand has led to the anger of British citizens from the United States: a country that for decades has made Britain a dependent player in the international system.

    British PM's late resignation and gray situation in London

    TEHRAN - Finally, the British prime minister officially announced that he would resign from his post. Theresa May leaves the power while the British withdrawal from Europe remains unabridged. Nobody also knows British Prime Minister as a professional and powerful politician! Undoubtedly, the British PM's resignation does not mean a political calm in this European country! In the near future, Britain will become the focus of political conflicts. Since 2016, many political analysts have warned of this.

    What is Johnson afraid of?

    TEHRAN _ The British Foreign Secretary's recent visit to our country is a matter of varying dimensions. The reality is that Boris Johnson is currently in a difficult position. He has been criticized by many British politicians such as Jeremy Corbin, the leader of the Labor Party in recent weeks. Even some Boris Johnson parties in the conservative party have advised him to resign from his position. Under these circumstances, the British Foreign Secretary has traveled to Iran to discuss the security prosecutors, nuclear accords and regional issues with our country's authorities. What is certain is that Britain is guilty of any of these cases. In other words, Boris Johnson must be held accountable for any charges against his government.
