  • Emmanuel Macron urges US

French President Emmanuel Macron said he believes President TrumpDonald John TrumpRepublicans hold on to Arizona House seat Dems win majority in New York Senate, but won't control it Mulvaney to bankers: Campaign donations will help limit consumer bureau's power MORE will drop out of the Iran nuclear deal, BuzzFeed News reported.

Mr Macron said: The United States is the one who invented this multilateralism. They could also change some of the expiration dates in the agreement. He added, "I've never been critical [of the JCPOA] because I think we can usefully add to it". "So the verification, what is in there, is actually pretty robust as far as our intrusive ability to get in" with representatives of the International Atomic Energy Agency to check on compliance. "I hear ... but we must find a transition to a low-carbon economy".

But a United States envoy clarifies on Wednesday, Washington is not seeking to reopen the nuclear deal but hopes to stay in it to fix its flaws with a supplementary agreement. The committee's senior Democrat, Sen.

Trump stands alone among the signatories to the Iran deal in opposing it. The last foreign leader to address a joint meeting was Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2016.

Macron worked hard to leverage his personal connection with Trump to get him to shift his position on a deal that the president has regularly denounced as a candidate and since taking office.

"What is the meaning of our lives, really, if we live and work destroying the planet. destroying opportunities for our children and grandchildren?" he continued, prompting rousing applause from the Democratic side of the chamber.

That deadline means there's still time for Trump to decide to stay in the accord for now.

Furthermore, Russian officials lined up to defend the deal, with the Kremlin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, saying there was no alternative to the JCPOA, which has been endorsed by UN Security Council Resolution 2231.

Iran negotiated the agreement - providing for curbs on its nuclear program in return for relief from numerous sanctions weighing on its economy - with China, France, Russia, Germany, the United Kingdom and the USA in 2015. He said Trump has not yet made a decision. He has said more recently that he will refuse to sign the next round of waivers on May 12 unless the agreement is amended to take a tougher stance.

"France will not leave the [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action], because we signed it", Macron told lawmakers. "That is why we can not say we should get rid of it like that", he said.

Adelman said Macron did well in his speech, and that he thinks the most likely path forward is a supplemental agreement to the original nuclear deal.

Iran's president on Wednesday ruled out any changes or additions to the accord. "Clearly, an implicit rebuke to some of the president's attempts at mobilizing his base of support by playing on anger and fears", Rathke said.

He also addressed a point made by others - that withdrawing would undermine U.S. leverage and credibility in coming talks with North Korea about eliminating its nuclear weapons.

"It is true to say that this agreement may not address all concerns and very important concerns", he said. If they restart it, they're going to have big problems, bigger than they ever had before.

French President Emmanuel Macron has drawn sharp contrasts with President Donald Trump's worldview during a speech to the US Congress.

Trump said key flaws in the agreement are the failure to address ballistic missiles and Iran's activities in Yemen and Syria.
