TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - “What I told him was not to tear up the deal,” Macron said in a live TV interview on Sunday, according to Politico.
“After that I told him, let’s have a demanding dialogue, let’s continue to conduct checks, but let’s be much more demanding with Iran on its ballistic activity.”
Macron also compared Trump wanting to “get tougher with Iran” with North Korea’s nuclear plan.
“I told him I thought this was the wrong approach because we have to look where we are now with Korea,” he said.
Speaking from the White House on Friday, Trump said he will choose not to certify that Tehran is complying with the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers (the US, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany), Tasnim reported.
He said that the new policy is aimed at preventing what he claimed Iran’s effort to obtain a nuclear weapon.
In response, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani blasted the anti-Iran comments, reiterating that the Iranian nation will not surrender to such “false statements and hate speech”.
