Macron to Trump: All Must Respect Iran Nuclear Deal
Local Editor

French President Emmanuel Macron told his American counterpart Donald Trump that all the signatories to the Iran nuclear deal should respect the terms of the agreement.

In a Thursday phone conversation with Trump, Macron reaffirmed France's determination to see "the strict application of the deal and the importance of all the signatories to respect it," AFP quoted the Elysee Palace as saying in a statement.

Trump, for his part, said Iran must stop what he called "its destabilizing activity in the region," the White House said.

Earlier in the day, European powers reaffirmed their determination to preserve Iran's nuclear agreement against the backdrop of US efforts to undermine the landmark multinational deal.

After a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Brussels, European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and the foreign ministers of Germany, France and Britain took turns to deliver a statement in defense of the 2015 nuclear agreement, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA].

In a post on his Twitter account, Zarif said there was "strong consensus" in Brussels about Iran's full commitment to its side of the bargain, but further adherence was conditional to Washington's compliance with the JCPOA.

The high-level talks in Brussels came as Trump is expected to decide on Friday whether to extend waivers on nuclear-related sanctions against Tehran.

Trump had in October 2016 refused to certify Iran's compliance with the deal in defiance of several reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA] confirming Tehran's full commitment.

He stopped short of withdrawing from the deal, leaving it to Congress to decide whether to re-impose nuclear-relations sanctions on Iran within a 60-day period.

The US Congress, however, passed the ball back to Trump by letting a mid-December deadline pass without making a decision on the issue.
