French President Urges Iran To Reach Nuclear Deal With World Powers

French President Emmanuel Macron expressed his disappointment to Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi over the lack of progress on the 2015 nuclear agreement, the Elysée Palace said in a statement on Saturday.

Iran began removing most of the agency’s monitoring equipment in June, introduced under the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Macron urged his Iranian counterpart to make a “clear choice” to reach a deal and return to implementing Iran’s commitments under the 2015 nuclear agreement.

The French president said he was convinced that such an outcome was still attainable but it should take place “as soon as possible”, the Elysée Palace said.

Macron also demanded the release of four French citizens who he said were “held arbitrarily” in Iran.
