TOKYO (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani that leaving the 2015 nuclear deal, or any signals that suggested Tehran would break the accord, would be a mistake.

“I had a conversation with President Rouhani a couple of days ago and I indicated that any exit from the accord would be an error and any signals in that direction would be an error,” Macron told reporters.
