France Committed to Iran Nuclear Deal Despite Trump Decision

PARIS (AP) — France has reaffirmed its support for the Iran nuclear deal following the decision by U.S. President Donald Trump to no longer back it in its current form.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves le Drian said Thursday after a meeting in Paris with head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Yukiya Amano, that the deal "remains valid despite the decision of the president of the United States not to certify its implementation."

Trump announced last week that he would not re-certify the deal to Congress and would terminate the Obama-era pact if Congress can't come up with new legislation satisfying him on the agreement.

Amano also met with French President Emmanuel Macron, who encouraged the IAEA to ensure strict adherence to the deal "in all its aspects."
