Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani talked with French President Emmanuel Macron in a phone call yesterday, as follow up to Trumps’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal. Iranian Students’ News Agency quoted Rouhnai saying that “under the current conditions, Europe has a very limited opportunity to preserve the nuclear deal, and must, as quickly as possible, clarify its position and specify and announce its intentions with regard to its obligations.” Rouhani also added that “despite what Trump thinks, enrichment in Iran has never been for obtaining a nuclear weapon but instead has been for scientific and technical pursuits.”

Separately, Macron said in an interview with Germany’s Deutsche Welle broadcaster yesterday that “We stand today at a historic moment for Europe – Europe is in charge of guaranteeing the multilateral order that we created at the end of World War II and which today is sometimes being shaken.”
