NEWYORK (Reuters) – France’s President Emmanuel Macron met Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday, shortly after holding talks with U.S. President Donald Trump, a French presidential official said.

Macron, who had already met Rouhani for 90 minutes on Monday night, is trying to defuse tensions between Washington and Tehran in the hope of opening a negotiation between the two sides as well as regional and international powers.
