French President Emmanuel Macron announced he wished to work on a ‘New Deal’ with Iran.
French President Emmanuel Macron told President Trump on Tuesday that he wanted to work on a “new deal” with Iran, opening a pathway to address Iran’s nuclear ambitions without ripping up the current agreement.
It was unclear which of the men had modified his stance, although they appeared to agree on the urgent need to crack down on Iran beyond the nuclear deal.
This is a much different tone than the one who Macron has used when discussing the deal in the past. Macron has publicly called for Trump not to leave the Iran Deal but it seems Macron is now on Trump’s side with renegotiating it.
