LONDON — British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Sunday that a failure to support her Brexit deal will be catastrophic for Britain.

Saying a rejection of the Brexit deal would be a catastrophic and unforgivable breach of trust, May urged the parliament to “forget the games and do what is right for our country.”


“If parliament does not come together and back this deal in our national interest we risk leaving with no deal, with all the uncertainty for jobs and security that will bring,” she said.

TEHRAN — Iran’s Foreign Ministry denied that Tehran considers withdrawal from the 2015 international nuclear deal, Tasnim news agency reported on Sunday.

The Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi strongly denied recent “rumors” inside the country about the country’s plan to pull out of the landmark deal as “untrue.”

It seems that certain groups are “systematically” fomenting mental chaos in the society and disrupting the market to favor the profiteers, Qasemi was quoted as saying.

“They are attempting to spread biased and false news to create negative psychological atmosphere in the market,” he said, adding that any decision about the nuclear deal comes within the purview of the Iranian high council monitoring the accord. Enditem
