Trump weighs in on whether he's deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize

Boris Johnson to meet Donald Trump to try and save Iran nuclear deal

President Donald Trump dismissed questions about whether or not he deserved the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to negotiate peace in North Korea. "So that's the only prize I want", Trump said in the Cabinet room.

Before that Foreign Secretary Mr Johnson will meet him in Washington DC to try to convince him to keep the deal.

At the same time, trump said that the new agreement with Iran would be developed on a "solid Foundation". "Because that's what we're talking about, so that's the only prize I want".

Johnson's trip follows similar endeavors by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, who both traveled to the US late last month and attempted to persuade Trump not to leave the Iran pact.

The North's official news agency quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman warning the claims are a "dangerous attempt" to ruin a budding detente on the Korean Peninsula after Kim's summit late last month with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. And when the British foreign secretary says he hopes that Trump will "fix" the Iran deal, what he really means is that he hopes Trump won't do what he's has very publicly said he will do: withdraw from it. Trump has long railed against the pact and vowed during the campaign to pull the US out. "Indeed at this moment Britain is working alongside the Trump administration and our French and German allies to ensure that they are".

West Brom relegated from Premier League
Hughes, meanwhile, will focus on making sure the disappointment of not beating Everton does not impact on Tuesday's game. The side needed a draw between Swansea and Southampton to keep alive its faint hopes, but Gabbiadini put paid to that.

'The UK, US and European partners are also united in our effort to tackle the kind of Iranian behaviour that makes the Middle East region less secure - its cyber activities, its support for groups like Hezbollah, and its risky missile programme, which is arming Houthi militias in Yemen'.

If Europe chose to stick to the deal, it would side against the United States with three of the countries it is most at odds with: Russia, China and Iran.

"I see lots of smart people making eloquent arguments to why it's wrong to violate the Iran deal and I just want to add mine", Fihn tweeted.

It's a question that may also be relevant to the committee in charge of choosing next year's Nobel Peace Prize victor.
