WASHINGTON, Jan 14 (Reuters) - The United States is 'very pleased' that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson agrees with the U.S. assessment on Iran with his comments expressing willingness to replace the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, Brian Hook, the U.S. Special Representative for Iran, told Reuters on Tuesday.

Hook said Washington was supportive of France, Britain and Germany's move to formally trigger the dispute mechanism in Iran's nuclear deal but added that the United States would like them to join its efforts of diplomatic isolation against the Islamic Republic.
