French President Francois Hollande says he has warned US President Donald Trump to respect Iran’s historic nuclear deal with the P5+1 group of countries.
Hollande gave the warning during a phone conversation with Trump on Saturday.
During his election campaign, Trump threatened that he would “tear up” the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or try to renegotiate its terms if elected president. He has also referred to the nuclear agreement as “the worst deal ever negotiated.”
Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council — the United States, France, Britain, Russia and China — plus Germany started implementing the JCPOA on January 16, 2016.
