  • US Prez Trump discusses standoff over Iran’s nuclear programme with Emmanuel Macron

    Published on July 9, 2019

    US President Donald Trump has discussed with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron the standoff over Iran’s nuclear programme. In a statement, White House said that the two leaders discussed ongoing efforts to ensure that Iran does not obtain a nuclear weapon and to end Iran’s destabilizing behaviour in the Middle East. Iran breached a uranium enrichment cap set by a 2015 nuclear deal that the Trump administration abandoned last year. Washington has imposed punishing sanctions on Tehran, and tensions between the two sides have risen further amid Iran’s downing of an American drone.
