Macron Mulls Visit to Iran

French President Emmanuel Macron is considering visiting Iran after speaking on phone with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, as US President Donald Trump said he was “decertifying” the nuclear deal with Tehran, the Elysee presidential office said on Friday. According to AFP, Macron told President Rouhani that France remained committed to the 2015 nuclear agreement that, besides the US, was also negotiated with Britain, China, Russia and Germany. “A trip to Iran by the president, at the invitation of President Rouhani, has been considered,” the Elysee said, while the Iranian presidential website said the visit would happen next year. Macron said the US decision “will not put an end to the Iranian nuclear accord and that together all the parties in France and its European partners will continue to meet their commitments.” Rouhani assured Macron that Iran in turn “will continue to carry out its commitments” concerning the nuclear accord. Macron’s visit to Iran would be the first by a French head of state or the government since 1971. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian is set to travel to Iran in the next few weeks.
