Europe must save multilateralism, says Macron as US quits Iran deal

Aachen (Germany) (AFP) – Europe is now the guarantor of the multilateral order, France’s President Emmanuel Macron said Wednesday, a day after US President Donald Trump ditched the landmark Iran nuclear deal.

“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 ARD and Deutsche Welle, in remarks released by the French presidency.
