INU - President Macron and Chancellor Merkel recently met with US President Trump in an attempt to save the Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). All parties are in agreement, though, that Iran must cease the behavior that has engendered international condemnation and sanctions. Threats may not be enough to pressure Iran. Access to international markets, technology, and financial systems must be dependent on Iran behaving responsibly.

French President Emmanuel Macron completed a three-day trip to Washington on Wednesday, which included meetings his American counterpart and a speech to the US Congress. One major purpose for that trip was to expand upon European efforts to convince Donald Trump to preserve the 2015 Iran nuclear deal beyond the May 12 deadline for the renewal of sanctions waivers put into place by the agreement. Trump renewed those waivers on January but warned that he would not do so again unless Congress and the European signatories to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action agreement upon a plan for fixing its “terrible flaws.”
