"He was given a perfectly easy opportunity to say: "I'm sorry about this, he's an excellent ambassador and has my support", which we ought to give him because he is undoubtedly a superb ambassador and a very good civil servant, and he chose quite deliberately not to".

In a tweet on Wednesday, the United States president also accused Iran of "secretly" enriching uranium, in violation of the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal that the USA pulled out of a year ago.

On Friday, the American president said that Britain needed to stop their "leaking problems".
His rival, Mr Johnson, said it was correct the person responsible for the leak was "hunted down and prosecuted" but it was wrong for police to target the media.
"The publication of these specific documents, now knowing they may be a breach of the OSA, could also constitute a criminal offence and one that carries no public interest defense", said Neil Basu, who heads the investigation as chief of counter-terrorism unit.
"The focus of the investigation is clearly on identifying who was responsible for the leak", Basu added.
Basu said journalists and publishers could be in breach of the law if they published further details from the memos.
