Trump, Macron call for new deal with Iran
US President Donald Trump and French counterpart Emmanuel Macron called for a “new” deal with Iran yesterday, looking beyond divisions over a landmark nuclear accord that now hangs in the balance. Trump pilloried a three-year old agreement designed to curb Iran’s nuclear programme as “insane” and “ridiculous”. Instead, Trump eyed a “grand bargain” that would also limit Iran’s ballistic missile programme and support for militant groups across the Middle East.
