No Room for Iran Nuclear Deal Progress Now - France's Macron
French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday, November 14, said that he did not believe any new proposals could help revive a nuclear deal with Iran in the near future, adding that a "new framework" will likely be needed to address the matter.
Asked on a French media outlet about whether he believed talks aimed at renewing an agreement between Tehran and world powers could be revived after significant setbacks in recent months, Macron said: "I would still be very cautious." "I don't think there will be new proposals which can be made right now [to save the nuclear deal]," he added.
Macron said the current political situation in Iran, where protests have broken out against the government, changed the situation "a lot" and "fragilized" the likelihood of reaching a deal with the country.
Last week, western powers said it was "essential and urgent" for Iran to explain uranium traces found at three sites in the country. Iran has agreed to a visit by the UN nuclear watchdog this month to provide answers on the matter. (JPost / VFI News)
“God, thank you for allies that are willing to reject the Iranian deal, and are taking active steps to protect the world from nuclear attacks.”
