British ministers rallied around Boris Johnson Sunday, saying the foreign secretary was doing a "great job" and had no reason to resign over remarks that critics say may prompt Iran to extend the prison sentence of a jailed aid worker. The coordinated defense is part of attempts to shore up the government of Prime Minister Theresa May, weakened by a series of scandals and gaffes involving her top team of ministers as she negotiates Britain's departure from the European Union.Zaghari-Ratcliffe's employer, the Thomson Reuters Foundation, a charity organization, said Johnson's comment made on Nov. 1 was incorrect, while opposition British lawmakers said the remarks could land the aid worker a longer term in jail.Opponents of Brexit – both from the opposition and from May's Conservative Party – will seek to give Parliament a binding vote on the final divorce deal between Britain and the EU.
