Macron: Necessary guarantees should be given to Iran

According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), French President said on Thursday that necessary guarantees should be given to Tehran with regards to the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Despite facing possible US sanctions, European companies are interested in preserving their cooperation with Iran, Macron said at a joint press conference with his Russian counterpart on the sidelines of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

The European countries have announced in recent days that they would stay in the deal, the French president said at the press conference which was broadcast live by Russia 24 TV network. He said three European countries that have signed the deal are implementing the provisions of the agreement.

Macron said during the last week’s EU summit in Sofia, the participants called on Iran to continue implementing its obligations under the deal so that European companies and their partners could find a suitable way to remain in Iran despite American sanctions.
