Macron's Iran Plan Would Add Elements to Nuclear Deal — German Official

Macron's Iran Plan Would Add Elements to Nuclear Deal — German Official

French President Emmanuel Macron addresses a joint session of Congress at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, April 25, 2018. "Iran will not accept a nuclear deal with no benefits for us", Velayati stressed. What we love is in danger. Despite his affection for Macron, he has not yet said he will do so. We really have controlled it, and we've set control on it. It can be tempting to us as a temporary remedy to our fears.

"We signed it at the initiative of the United States".

"The United States is the one who invented this multilateralism", Macron said.

He reiterated French support for U.S. sanctions on Pyongyang toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and said that as for Iran, "our objective is clear: Iran shall never possess any nuclear weapons".

And he put all he said in the context of a thoroughly Gallic nod to rationality.

Capping a three-day visit to the United States, France's Macron told a joint meeting of Congress that the 2015 deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was not perfect but must remain in place until a replacement was forged.

If Macron was as good a friend to Trump as he so often claims, his message would have been, with regard to Syria: Mr. President, get out.

"I don't know what the American decision will be, but the rational analysis of all President Trump's statements does not lead me to believe that he will do everything to stay in the JCPOA", Macron said at a final news conference.

May 12 is the date by which Trump has to decide whether or not to continue waiving sanctions on Iran that were lifted under the Iran deal.

The EU says it is in full agreement with China and Russia over the need to preserve the deal, but has expressed concerns about Iran's missile programme and its role in the Middle East.

"Commercial war is not the proper answer", Macron said.

"The president - and when I say 'president, ' I'm talking about the past administration - made a horrible deal, giving $150 billion, giving $1.8 billion in cash.it's inconceivable. What is the meaning of our life if our decision, our confused decision, is to reduce the opportunities for our children or grandchildren?" he said. "We should follow them".

Still, the French president said last week that in light of the many forces undermining democracy around the world, he did not "want to belong to a generation of sleepwalkers". And he reminded his American listeners that the chief architect of the multilateral institutions defending democratic ideals was - the United States of America. The Paris Agreement gives us a framework to act, but only if we scale up our ambition.

Unable to keep up pretenses, the prime minister of Australia squabbled with Trump, who was having trouble understanding his immigration policy.

Macron's provocative speech came after he enjoyed an exuberant welcome from the Republican president - an elaborate state dinner, an intimate get together for four with their wives at George Washington's Virginia estate Mount Vernon, and repeated vows of friendship.

Brian Hook, a senior State Department official leading talks with the Europeans, told National Public Radio on Wednesday that Messrs. His observation that Western countries should "not create new walls" also struck a chord with Democrats, but not Republicans.

He also warned against the growing strongman-style of leadership seen in several parts of the world.

But now Emmanuel Macron, the president of France, has tried something more complicated. It has paid huge sums of compensatory money to the Iranian regime, of which some are Iranian funds that were frozen after the revolution. For the fight against extremism and intolerance and sectarianism and chauvinism are of a piece with the fight against authoritarianism and nationalist aggression.
