The Belgian frigate HNLMS Leopold I and the Japanese destroyer JS Ariake also will take part, as well as aircraft from the four nations.

Current US President Joe Biden has expressed a desire to return to the deal if Iran honours the deal’s limits on its nuclear programme, but tensions remain high after militias in Iraq — likely backed by Iran — continue to target American interests.
