Trump says ‘great unity’ in G7 over Iran nuclear issue
BIARRITZ, France — US President Donald Trump says the G7 group is unified over Iran with a common goal to ensure the country does not acquire nuclear weapons.
There is “great unity,” he says alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the G7 summit in the southwestern French resort of Biarritz.
“We’ve come to a conclusion, more or less,” he says, explaining this meant the non-nuclear status for Iran. But Merkel says talks on how to achieve this were “slowly moving.”
