Donald Trump says he wishes Sir Kim well

Britain's ambassador to Washington believed US President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iranian nuclear deal because it was associated with his predecessor Barack Obama, leaked documents showed Saturday.

According to BBC, Darroch reportedly described the decision as ' diplomatic vandalism.' He also reportedly wrote in the memo that Trump was pulling out due to "personality reasons" and because it had been claimed as a major breakthrough by Obama when he was the US President.

The memo was written shortly after then British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson's trip to Washington to persuade the White House to stick with the nuclear deal, the newspaper said.

Afterwards, Darroch reportedly indicated there were divisions in Trump's team over the decision, and criticised the White House for not having a long-term strategy.

In the first batch, dating from 2017 to the present, Darroch said the USA administration was "diplomatically clumsy and inept" and would not likely become "substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven".

The announcement came as Tory leadership front runner Boris Johnson admitted his reported lack of support for Sir Kim had been a factor in the envoy deciding to step down.

Sir Kim quit on Wednesday, saying that the disclosures had made it "impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like".

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said publishing the contents of the documents could be "a criminal matter".

"They can't articulate any "day-after" strategy; and contacts with State Department this morning suggest no sort of plan for reaching out to partners and allies, whether in Europe or the region", he wrote. Darroch also described Trump as inept, insecure and incompetent. He said he had not defended the ambassador more because he did not think civil servants should be dragged into political disputes.

That is according to the latest leaked cables involving Kim Darroch.

Richard Tice, the chairman of Nigel Farage's Brexit party, who is dating Oakeshott denied Sunday he had played any part in arranging the leaks or that he had seen the cables before publication.

Mr Basu said the Met had been brought in following a cross-government investigation led by the Cabinet Office into the leak of the cables to The Mail on Sunday.

Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said: "It can not be conceivably right that newspapers or any other media organisation publishing such material should face prosecution".

The leaks have also rattled United Kingdom politics, as Johnson, now the frontrunner become the next prime minister, has come under fire for refusing to say that Darroch should keep his job.

Johnson and Hunt are locked in a battle to succeed Theresa May, who resigned as prime minister after failing three times to get parliamentary approval for a withdrawal deal for Britain's exit from the European Union.
