French President Emmanuel macron sends Iran “conflicting signals,” American leader Donald trump said in his Twitter account.
“Iran has serious financial problems. They desperately want to talk to the US, but they are sent conflicting signals from everyone who claims to represent us, including French President Macron,” Trump wrote. He added that despite the good intentions of the French leader, “no one speaks for the United States, except for the United States.”
In May last year, Donald Trump announced the country’s withdrawal from the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. The deal imposes restrictions on Tehran’s activity in the nuclear sphere in exchange for the lifting of UN Security Council sanctions and restrictive measures that were previously imposed by the US and the EU.
Other parties to the agreement — Russia, Britain, China, France, and Germany — criticized trump’s decision and said they intend to keep the agreement in force. In particular, European countries plan to take advantage of the adopted 20 years ago, but remained unclaimed provision on protection from the execution of US sanctions.
