Macron believes Trump will drop Iran nuclear deal

As Trump weighs pulling out of the 2015 Iran accord, Macron made clear that France will not follow his lead.

A day after the French leader had put on a show of warmth and brotherly affection for Trump at the White House, his blunt speech prizing engagement over isolationism reinforced the French leader's emerging role as a top defender of the liberal world order.

He said he and Macron had developed over the past year "a wonderful friendship" that is "a testament to the enduring friendship that binds our two nations".

Macron's speech, delivered in the House chamber, spurred multiple standing ovations, many from Democratic lawmakers heartened by his none-too-subtle rebuke of many of Trump's positions and political instincts.

"You could really feel that Macron was connecting with Trump", Noah said. "Iran will not accept a nuclear deal with no benefits for us", Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said.

Macron said the deal known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was not addressing "all concerns" but stressed that the deal could not be ditched.

Since he came to White House in January previous year, US President Donald Trump has signed several waivers to continue the suspension of the sanctions against Iran.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani yesterday questioned the legitimacy of demands for a fresh nuclear agreement with Tehran. "We, therefore, wish from now on to work on a new deal with Iran".

If Earth's climate continues to warm, "there is no Planet B", he added. As Mr Macron prepares to mark the first anniversary of his election on May 7th, he is not popular at home. "It may happen, like in all families", he said - but such differences would be short-term.

"I hope that everyone at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue takes President Macron's words to heart", Schumer said on the Senate floor.

She noted that while Trump and Macron seemed nearly excessively friendly in their public appearances Tuesday, the French president's speech on Wednesday before Congress revealed that he is deeply critical of the US president's governing philosophy. "This is a great honour and seldom allowed to be done.he will be GREAT!"

Emmanuel Macron came, saw and conquered Washington this week. "We'll see also if I do what some people expect, whether or not it will be possible to do a new deal with solid foundations".

Macron was speaking as part of his visit to the United States.

"There will be more discussions between the French president and the American president and those discussions can build on the continued implementation of the Iranian nuclear agreement".

Under the terms of the agreement, reached under Mr Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, Iran agreed to limit its controversial nuclear programme in return for an easing of economic sanctions. Trump also threatened Tehran with retaliation if it restarted its nuclear programme.

Macron again urged adding limitations on Iran's ballistic missile program and limiting Iran's regional influence to a potential new deal. John Kerry negotiated the final deal with Iran in spring 2015, even as worldwide weapons inspectors raised concerns about their ability to properly inspect and verify Iranian military sites. Iran shall never possess any nuclear weapons. They're now afraid that Trump will scrap the deal which they worked five years to finalize.

In a speech to Congress yesterday, however, Macron said that France would remain in the Iran deal. But Tehran is in no mood for changes in the agreement.

Mr Trump and Mr Macron donned tuxedos and greeted each other with a traditional French two-cheek kiss before heading with their wives for a lavish state dinner on Wednesday. The last foreign leader to address a joint meeting was Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2016.
