Macron's office said he and Putin "expressed their common will to preserve the gains from the agreement", which saw Iran agree to freeze its nuclear programme in exchange for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions.

"In recent days, Iran has taken very important decisions in the areas of banking relations, foreign currency and other economic issues and has also designed various measures for any decision that the US would take on May 12". "We've certainly made some (progress with the Europeans)", he said.

The nuclear pact was signed by Iran, America, China, France, Russia, Germany, the United Kingdom and the European Union. The French president expressed his belief that the JCPOA should not be torn apart, but a wider accord must be reached to also curb Iran's ballistic program and contain its influence in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon.
