TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -
"That Marin Le Pen, the leader and candidate of far-right of party France’s national front, with her anti-immigration and anti-Muslim policies didn’t win in this election should be taken as positive sign,” Iranian former envoy in London Seyyed Jalal Sadatian said.
He added "so far we have observed no anti-immigration and anti-Muslim policies from Macron’s side, therefore it seems that we can maintain our usual relations with France as it used to be”.
Pointing out to the new president’s approach to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Jalalian noted "the European Union is now an advocate of relationship with Iran and preserver of JCPOA, trying to keep its reasonable ties with Tehran; thus, with regard to the influence of the union in France, we can say that we are optimistic toward Paris and his [Macron’s] commitment to the agreement”.
Macron is seen as a centrist who aims to continue the policies of
outgoing President Francois Hollande by deregulating the economy and
deepening integration with the European Union.
