Macron: EU summit decides to back JCPOA
Participants of the EU summit have decided to support the Iran nuclear deal and protect European businesses from the US steps, French President Emmanuel Macron said as he arrived for the EU-Western Balkans summit in Sofia.
"We had a substantive discussion on Iran. The 2015 deal is an important element of peace and security in the region, and we decided to back it regardless of the US decision," he stressed. "We promised to take political measures allowing our enterprises to remain in Iran," TASS cited Macron as saying.
Earlier, the French president and the Iranian president Hassan Rouhani agreed to continue their joint work with all concerned states in order to keep implementing the nuclear deal and preserve regional stability.
