US Allies Press Trump to Keep Nuclear Deal Alive

Western allies stepped up pressure on US President Donald Trump to keep alive an international nuclear deal with Iran, with French President Emmanuel Macron due to urge him in person not to tear up the 2015 agreement.
Trump has said that unless European allies fix what he has called its “terrible flaws” by May 12, he will restore US economic sanctions on Iran, which would be a severe blow to the pact, Reuters reported.
Macron, who arrived in Washington on Monday for a state visit, said on Sunday there was no “Plan B” for keeping a lid on Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
Minutes after Macron’s plane touched down, the White House said it had no announcement on the Iran deal. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders added, “The president has been extremely clear that he thinks it’s a bad deal. That certainly has not changed.”
President Hassan Rouhani warned Trump on Tuesday to stay in the nuclear or face “severe consequences”.
