LONDON - British Prime Minister Theresa May will express her beliefs on the value of free trade and also her support for the Iran nuclear deal when she meets US President Donald Trump later this week, her spokeswoman said.

"You can expect the prime minister to be very clear during her US visit on the benefits of free trade and championing them and wanting to look at what more can be done to increase that," the spokeswoman told reporters on Monday.Asked about the 2015 nuclear accord between Iran and world powers, which Trump has threatened to either scrap or change, the spokeswoman said: "Certainly we have been a strong supporter of the Iran deal, of securing that, and I would expect the prime minister to be clear on that during her visit to the US"
