Macron attacks nationalism in speech to US Congress

"We are not discussing renegotiating the agreement - that is not what the two presidents were talking about", Mogherini told reporters after an worldwide conference on Syria.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani accused the United States of seeking to unilaterally change the terms of the multilateral deal and derided Trump as a "tradesman" lacking the background to handle with global affairs. "I believe we can build the right answers ... by negotiating through the WTO and building cooperative solutions", he said. Her visit immediately after French President Emanuel Macron's state visit to Washington is taking place just before the expiry of an exemption for the European Union from USA import duties on steel and aluminum on May 1.

"It is vital that we continue to work together to tackle some of the world's greatest challenges including the prevention of a nuclear Iran, bringing an end to the violence in Syria and taking real action to address global climate change", said Titus, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Macron made the prediction following the third day of an official state visit to Washington, during which the two leaders touted a great relationship between the United States and France. But Macron indicated that Trump was willing to work on a more expansive agreement.

One source familiar with the discussions said that what Iran says in private is very much like the rhetoric it uses in public- that renegotiating would kill Tehran's participation.

"Ever since General Lafayette joined the American fight for independence, our fates and fortunes have been tied unequivocally together", Trump said during a July 2017 visit to France. There is the situation in Syria, there is security in the entire region and I think, in any case, we share a common goal of avoiding an escalation and proliferation of nuclear weapons in the region. If he does not, it would be a breach of the agreement that Iran has vowed to reciprocate, opening the door to the unraveling of the deal.

Macron has positioned himself as a negotiator between Europe and the U.S., and appears to have established an influential relationship with President Trump. Let us not be naive on one side ... Past year he dramatically pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord.

The two leaders also discussed European calls for exemptions from Trump's plan for 25 percent tariffs on steel imports.

Rudy Gobert added 16 points and 10 rebounds. "I thought we played downhill a lot more", coach Billy Donovan said. George led the scoring for Oklahoma City with 32 points while Westbrook had 23 points and 14 rebounds.

"It was only to convince Trump not to nix the deal, assuming Trump is even listening to him in the first place", he said.

"We will overcome the dangers". We'll be coming home.

"We signed it at the initiative of the United States". He did, however, reiterate his long-standing opposition to the 2015 deal, which restricts Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. Tehran says its nuclear program is only for peaceful means.

He agreed with Mr Trump that any deal should include a wider agreement on Iran's influence in the Middle East and should cover the country's nuclear activities longer term, as well as its ballistic missile program.

He has been a strong critic of the accord, calling it "insane".

He has proposed an additional deal that extends Iran's nuclear restrictions while also curbing its ballistic missile programme and support for militias in the Middle East.

As before, President Trump could not offer a date for a meeting with Kim Jong-un, or a concrete assurance as to whether the meeting would definitely go ahead.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel faces hard talks with Trump on Friday during a visit at a time when Washington and Berlin are at odds over a range of issues from trade to Iran.
