Macron, Trump Discuss 'Peace And Stability In Middle East'

"There are areas beyond the (nuclear) accord that we must talk about", she said.

Dr Merkel's comments yesterday reprise a theme she first sounded past year in response to US President Donald Trump's "America First" foreign policy and his hectoring of European Nato allies for allegedly spending too little on defence.

"We stand today at a historic moment for Europe - Europe is in charge of guaranteeing the multilateral order that we created at the end of World War II and which today is sometimes being shaken", Macron told German broadcasters in an interview.

Most recently, Macron led the charge by European leaders to try to convince his USA counterpart Donald Trump to stick with the deal curbing Iran's nuclear programme.

Angela Merkel's main worry is Trump's decision to slap protectionist tariffs on the import of steel, aluminum and especially German cars, which threatens to unleash a trade war with the EU. It was no accident that Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel held a meeting ahead of their visits to Washington to agree upon their positions as well as to determine the questions each of them would discuss when they met Donald Trump. "Let's face it, Europe is still in its infancy with regard to the common foreign policy", Merkel said, but stressed the need for nations to close ranks against common threats. Trump dynamited The Paris climate agreement, declared North Atlantic Treaty Organisation obsolete, began a few weeks ago with protectionist threats and now gives lace with rupture of agreement with Iran, which represents a slap for European interests and above all a blow for Geopolitics and global security.

Twitter is toying with encrypted direct messaging on the Android app
The encrypted communication would only apply to direct messages, so this doesn't mean users can publish encrypted tweets . Seemingly inspired by an exchange between Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2016.

Iran continues to develop its missile program as it is not a part of the JCPOA, which is sharply criticized by the United States and Israel.

Soon after the United States announcement, Iran also ceased its business operations with the USA -based Boeing which was allowed to do business with Iran after the Iran Nuclear Deal was signed in 2015. It's the successful result of many years of diplomatic negotiations.

Maas pointed out the inspectors of International Atomic Energy Agency had concluded that Iran was meeting the terms of the agreement and was not trying to develop nuclear weapons.

Underscoring the political unity in Germany on this issue, Andrea Nahles, the head of the Social Democratic Party and who is not a member of Merkel's Cabinet - also lambasted the USA president's decision. Trump's decision will cost Boeing US$ 20 billion worth of contracts.

"We will remain committed to this agreement and will do everything to ensure that Iran complies with the deal", Merkel said, adding that Berlin had made the decision jointly with Paris and London.
