Trump, Macron to face differences on Iran, trade, as French visit begins

French President Emmanuel Macron said he will advise US President Donald Trump not to pull the United States out of the agreement on Iran's nuclear program during a state visit beginning Monday.

Under the nuclear deal - signed in 2015 by Iran, France, the United States, China, Britain, Russia and Germany - Tehran agreed to restrictions and intensive monitoring meant to ensure it could not build a nuclear weapon.

The French president suggested the U.S.at least maintain a diplomatic presence in Syria, considering a regime change would "fuel the new terrorists" and create a vacuum in which the "Iranian regime" would thrive.

Trump has threatened to pull out of the deal, warning in October that he would walk away from it unless what he called flaws were addressed.

Macron, who has emerged as Trump's privileged European partner, is urging him on behalf of the Old Continent not to kill the deal.
