- Macron Warns of World War 3 as Tensions Rise Over Iran Nuclear Deal
by ROMINA MCGUINNESS, https://www.express.co.uk/
EMMANUEL Macron has warned war will break out if world leaders do not “stabilise” tensions arising from the Iran nuclear deal in a frantic European effort to save the agreement from collapse.
Iran announced it will open a new centre from enriching uranium after US President Donald Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal and slapped sanctions on the country. Mr Macron, in a bid to smooth over diplomatic relations, said it “does not mean” Iran has stepped outside the scope of its nuclear agreement.
At a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Paris, Mr Macron said: “I call on everyone to stabilise the situation and not give in to this escalation, which would lead only to one thing: conflict.”
