Macron Urges ‘Dialogue and Multilateralism’ on Iran

French President Emmanuel Macron called Tuesday for “dialogue and multilateralism” on Iran, in a thinly veiled response to President Donald Trump’s push for tough, US-led sanctions.
Macron Urges ‘Dialogue and Multilateralism’ on Iran
AVA- Speaking at the UN General Assembly shortly after Trump, the French leader credited the 2015 accord rejected by Trump with “curbing the nuclear program of Iran”.
Speaking at the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Tuesday, Macron credited the historic nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in 2015 despite US President Donald Trump's withdrawal from it.
“What will bring a real solution to the situation in Iran and what has already stabilized it? The law of the strongest? Pressure from only one side? No!” Macron said.
“We know that Iran was on a nuclear military path but what stopped it? The 2015 Vienna accord,” he said
In his second address to the General Assembly, Trump urged the world to isolate Iran, accusing it of sponsoring terrorism and sowing "chaos, death and destruction," in the Middle East.
