Macron says G7 agreed on joint action over Iran to defuse tensions

BIARRITZ, France, Aug 25 (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron said on Sunday that G7 leaders had agreed joint action on Iran with the aim of defusing tensions and opening a new negotiation with Tehran.

"We agreed on what we wanted to say jointly on Iran," Macron told LCI television. There is a message from the G7 on our objectives and the fact that we share them is important, which avoids divisions that in the end weaken everybody."

"Everyone wants to avoid a conflict, Donald Trump was extremely clear on that point." (Reporting by Michel Rose and John Irish; Editing by Toby Chopra)
