Macron reiterates need to keep Iran nuclear deal

"The United States is with Israel in this fight and we strongly support israel's sovereign right to defend itself", he added.

Asked about the IAEA's conclusion on CNN's "New Day", Netanyahu replied: "No one had better intelligence on Iran than Israel".

Iran has long said its nuclear program was for civilian purposes and that it is committed to never developing atomic weapons.

Prime Minister Netanyahu, while saying Israel wasn't "seeking" the war, was also clearly not ruling it out, saying that if such a war happened it would be because Iran is "changing the rules in the region".

A decision by Trump to end USA sanctions relief would all but sink the agreement and could trigger a backlash by Iran, which could resume its nuclear arms program or "punish" US allies in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon, diplomats said.

Benjamin Netanyahu discussing Iran's nuclear weapons program on Monday. He told me that "Iran lied about its nuclear weapons program", and that it "retained a vast atomic archive with detailed instructions on how to restart its nuclear weapons program at a time of its choosing". But he failed to provide any sort of evidence. He subsequently went on s creed about the "threats of Iran", and declared "Israel has four problems: Iran, Iran, Iran, and hypocrisy". Word of the consultations between Trump and Netanyahu serve to underscore perceptions of a coordinated bid by both leaders to bury the global agreement, which Trump has called "horrible" and Netanyahu has termed "terrible".

France's Macron unsure whether Trump will stick to Iran deal
Also puzzling is why the White House didn't announce in advance that the planting last week was a purely symbolic event. Reuters images showed a light patch of grass covering the spot where the oak briefly stood.

But, Pompeo declined to say whether the documents provided evidence of a violation of the nuclear deal. The next deadline is May 12. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he believed the documents were authentic and said they contained new information that was being analyzed.

In the name of national security, Iran had denied access to inspectors to its "suspected" military bases on multiple occasions.

"We learned an enormous amount about Iran's secret nuclear program".

The allegations are the repetitions of Netanyahu's speeches in the past, he said, adding that such allegations against Tehran have already been proven wrong by the IAEA.

This seems to be the favored explanation from former Obama administration officials and those who favor remaining in the Iran deal in its current form.

Yet, Netanyahu stressed in his presentation that the Iranians "archived" their suspended nuclear program, so as to have it available for quick resumption.

May faces cabinet split over customs union
Officials and ministers will now go back to the drawing-board in the search for a compromise between the two positions. The UK would collect tariffs set by the EU customs union on goods coming into the UK on behalf of the EU.

"We should not scrap it unless we have a good alternative", he told the BBC.

"It is clear that the worldwide community had doubts that Iran was carrying out an exclusively peaceful nuclear program", a German government spokesman said, as translated by Reuters. He would signal to North Korea that any future agreements or accords would be taken seriously, and that at the first sign of noncompliance, any and all carrots would be immediately morphed into sticks.

"This information should be studied and evaluated in detail", Agnes Von der Muhll, spokesperson of foreign ministry of France said.

Europe's response to Netanyahu was to argue that if you don't trust someone, that's all the more reason to keep them where you can see them - in this case, under one of the toughest nuclear-inspection regimes ever imposed.

Trump, at a news conference at the White House, attacked the "horrible" deal again, which has been struck by the Obama administration with Iran in 2015 along with other world powers.
