French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian criticized Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran deal as “isolationist, protectionist and unilateral logic.” And he added, “this is a break with international commitment and France deeply regrets this decision.”
But Le Drian emphasized that the Iran nuclear deal “is not dead”, and pledged to “bring businesses together in the coming days to try and preserve them as much as possible from the US measures.” And, “we must talk about Iran’s impressive ballistic missiles. Let’s talk about this with Iran, let’s put everything on the table but let’s stay in the accord, the accord is a good thing for the stability in the region and for our security.”
French President Emmanuel Macron would call Iranian President Hassan Rouhani today. And representatives from France, the UK and Germany would meet with Iranian counterparts on Monday.
