Macron: US withdrawal from Iran deal resulted in a 'serious crisis of confidence'

French President Emanuel Macron on Wednesday said that a "serious crisis of confidence" has emerged after US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

In his message before the UN Security Council, Macron said that while the 2015 deal is "imperfect", it ensures that Iran would not be able to obtain nuclear weapons.

Since the deal was signed, the "pathways of the signatories of the JCPOA have diverged...but we still, all of us here, retain the same objective of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, and guaranteeing strict international control on the peaceful use of their nuclear programme".
