Trump: US, France on same page with regard to Iran

President Donald Trump said on Thursday that the United States and France share the common objective that Iran cannot obtain nuclear weapons despite French President Emmanuel Macron's recent comment that he regretted Washington's decision to pull out of the international nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic, ONA reports citing Sputnik International.

"I don't think we have differences over Iran. I don't think that the president wants to see nuclear weapons and neither do I. They won't have nuclear weapons", Trump said.

Trump said that when he took office in January 2017, Iran was the "undisputed champion of terror," but the "powerful sanctions" changed that behavior.

Macron agreed with Trump, saying France shares the view that Iran can't be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons.

"We need to open a new negotiation in order to achieve these four objections", Macron said.
