Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “‘Apologists for Iranian regime’: Boris backer Truss slams critics over Zaghari-Ratcliffe case”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

In an interview with BBC Radio 4’s Today program, Truss rejected any suggestions that Johnson is to blame for the continuing imprisonment of British mother Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, due to wrongfully asserting that she was training journalists, while he was foreign secretary.

I think this is a complete misplacement of blame. The people who are keeping Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe in jail are the Iranians. This is an oppressive Iranian regime – I think it’s apologists for that regime who are putting the blame on Boris Johnson…

Truss also rebuffed accusations that Johnson was the “worst foreign secretary in living memory,” claiming that such attacks were as a result of his “huge public appeal.”
