France’s Macron: Iran must stop violating the nuclear deal

French President Emmanuel Macron says Iran must cease its violations of the 2015 accord limiting its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

“Iran must stop worsening the nuclear situation that is already serious by accumulating violations of the Vienna accord,” Macron says during a joint press conference at the Elysee Palace with President Reuven Rivlin.

Macron says France wants to revive nuclear talks and calls for full inspections of Iranian nuclear facilities and to address Iran’s missile program.

“Iran must make the expected gestures and behave in a responsible manner,” he says.
