Iran Rejects UK’s Call For ‘Trump Deal’ To Replace Nuclear Accord

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has dismissed UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's call for a new "Trump deal" to replace the 2015 nuclear agreement. Mr Johnson said he recognised that Mr Trump saw the accord as "flawed" and suggested he could renegotiate it. Mr Rouhani warned that "all Trump has done is break promises". He also criticised the UK, France and Germany for triggering the nuclear deal's dispute mechanism after Iran breached key commitments. President Trump abandoned the nuclear deal in 2018 and reinstated US sanctions on Iran to try to force it to negotiate a new agreement that would place indefinite curbs on its nuclear programme and also halt its development of ballistic missiles. After the Trump administration increased the pressure on Iran in May 2019, the coun...

This follows other claims last week that the forthcoming flagship, the P40, which is due to launch in March, will ship with the company’s Google replacement services onboard. Nothing is yet confirmed, but speculation is rife ahead of the company’s 2020 product launches. The latest claims come from Huawei’s consumer head in India, Charles Peng, who was quoted in the country’s Economic Times on December 24 saying that "we have our own HMS and are trying to build a mobile ecosystem.

Chelsea Picks Lille’s Osimhen To Replace Outgoing Giroud

Chelsea's Olivier Giroud is being pushed even closer to the exit door at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are having identified Lille's Victor Osimhen as a player they wish to bring in in January, according to Sky Sports. Giroud has fallen down the pecking order at the Blues this season and with aspirations of being part of France's squad for EURO 2020, he is well aware he needs to move elsewhere for regular playing time.

The veteran striker's contract is due to expire at the end of the current season meaning Chelsea are unlikely to command a large fee for him.
