British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is ramping up criticism of Iran and Mainland China.

“We remain extremely concerned by Iran’s influence in the region, the disruptive behavior of Iran and particularly of course, we are concerned by the risk of Iran developing a nuclear weapon,” Johnson stated.

On Tuesday, Johnson told Parliament that Iran and China are posing a growing threat to the free world.

He also condemned Beijing’s genocide of Uighurs, something that Joe Biden referred to as mere “cultural differences.”

“Our deep concern over China’s mass detention of the Uighur people in Xinjiang province and in giving nearly three million of Hong Kong’s people a route to British citizenship,” Johnson stated. “There is no question that China will pose a great challenge for an open society such as ours.”

The prime minister also said he will increase Britain’s arsenal of nuclear warheads by 40 percent amid Biden’s failure to stand up to global threats.
