France’s Macron trying to save Iran nuclear deal
PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron says he is trying to resume dialogue between Iran and Western partners by July 15 to calm tensions in the region.
Macron’s office said in a statement that the French leader spoke for more than an hour Saturday with Iranian President Hassan Rohani amid a standoff between Tehran and the U.S.
Macron expressed “strong concern about new weakening” of the 2015 accord aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
Europe is struggling to save the 2015 accord after President Donald Trump abandoned it last year.
