Macron Lobbies Trump To Keep US A Part Of Iran Nuclear Deal

Near the end of his three-day state visit, Mr Macron told U.S. media that while he did not know specifically what Mr Trump will decide, he believes the USA leader "will get rid of this deal on his own, for domestic reasons".
The Joint Comprehensive Plans of Action was signed by the US, UK, France, China and Russia, Germany and the European Union on side and Iran on the other and went into effect in 2016, but the US president has been mandated by Congress to certify Iranian compliance every 90 days for America to abide by the deal.
Trump will decide by May 12 whether to restore USA economic sanctions on Iran, which would be a severe blow to the 2015 pact between Iran and six major powers.
He once suggested the answer to Tehran's nuclear programme - which Iran has always said was for peaceful means only - was 2,000 bombing sorties. Not now. Not in five years. Macron urged the United States to understand that there is "no Planet B", that the world must work together to solve the problem or all will suffer. "And the Republicans see France as a valuable military ally who brings respect for their embattled American president".
Macron warned "we are living in a time of anger and fear" and said now the USA and France must show that democracy is the path forward.
Pompeo's supporters said he did well during 15 months leading the Central Intelligence Agency, and said the United States badly needed a leader at the State Department.
Macron said the deal known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was not addressing "all concerns" but stressed that the deal could not be ditched.
"What is the meaning of our life, really, if we work and live destroying the planet, sacrificing the future of our children?" he asked as the room erupted, mostly among Democratic members of Congress, in applause.
The others would address the period after 2025, when certain clauses concerning nuclear activities will end; Iran's highly controversial ballistic missile programme; and its "destabilising" role in the region. "We will not repeat the mistakes of past administrations", he said at a White House press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
A top Israeli Cabinet minister says the Iran nuclear deal must be "fundamentally amended, and if not - cancelled".
In Geneva on the same day, the assistant secretary for worldwide security, Christopher Ford, said: "We are not aiming to renegotiate the JCPOA or reopen it or change its terms", seemingly in clear contradiction of multiple presidential statements.
He continued, "And you know how Macron's BFF, Trump, has repeatedly said that global warming is a fraud?"
"We can choose isolationism, withdrawal and nationalism. but that will only inflame the fears of our citizens. anger and fear don't build anything, it weakens us", Mr Macron said.
"I " m sure, one day, the United States will come back and join the Paris agreement.
"Trump and Macron have an interesting relationship", comedian Jimmy Kimmel said on his talk show on ABC.
Mattis said that criticisms of the agreement are "valid", but that, "obviously, aspects of the agreement that can be improved upon".
He highlighted the joint cooperation needed in Syria, even as Trump has said he wants to withdraw troops.
Mattis in the past has said he believes the agreement is flawed but that the US should stick with it. He emphasized strengthening cooperation and using "results-based" multilateralism to address current global threats.
"This new initiative is a very important complement to the two existing initiatives [the Astana and the Geneva process - TASS] we have to take into consideration", Macron explained. "You are the one now who has to help to preserve and reinvent it". "We still have some gaps to close", he told National Public Radio.
He said: "We must keep our eyes wide open to the risks in front of us..."
Macron acknowledged the "disagreement" he has with Trump, who withdrew the United States from the climate pact a year ago.
