French President Emmanuel Macron telephoned his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, to whom he reiterated his country’s position on the nuclear agreement with Iran, which should prevent Tehran from ever possessing the atomic weapon.
I have been speaking to Vladimir Putin to once again assess the situation. Iran must never obtain a nuclear weapon. The stability of the region and international security depend on this. We are working on it, as we must also work on building a just peace in Syria. https://t.co/eqHTq39x2F

The tweet is accompanied by a video of the telephone conversation, which took place from the presidential plane in which Macron embarked this morning to Australia to participate in the Commonwealth summit.
The French president said he also spoke with Putin about the crisis in Syria and said that both countries should work together “for a just peace.”
The French Presidency issued a statement in which Macron and Putin agreed on the need to maintain the 2015 agreement signed between Iran and the international community, which regulates controls on Iranian nuclear power in exchange for the lifting of sanctions.
