Macron Visiting Unstable Mideast

French President Emmanuel Macron announced his intention to visit Iran as part of efforts to talk to all the actors in the Middle East to help defuse tensions in the unstable region. “We need to have a truthful dialogue,” he said in a press conference in Dubai, the UAE, on Thursday before leaving for Riyadh, France 24 reported.   “It’s not about showing any naivety toward Iran; it is about standing beside our allies … But it is also about not having a diehard policy that could create imbalances or even conflicts in the region.” Macron reassured that he wants to keep the landmark Iran nuclear deal, which US President Donald Trump has challenged. But he said he was “very concerned” over Iran’s ballistic missile program. “There are extremely strong concerns about Iran. There are negotiations we need to start on Iran’s ballistic missiles,” he said.  “Like what was done in 2015 for the nuclear activities, it’s necessary to put a framework in place for Iran’s ballistic activities and open a process, with sanctions if needed, of negotiation that would enable [that].”  While Iraq and Syria are fighting foreign-backed terrorists, Saudi Arabia is waging a war against Yemen to reinstate the country’s fugitive president, blockaded Qatar and encouraged the Lebanese premier to resign to fuel tensions and conflicts throughout the region.
