A top adviser to Iran's supreme leader said Thursday Tehran would not accept any change to its nuclear deal, as Western signatories prepare a new package in the hope of persuading U.S. President Donald Trump to stick with the accord. Meanwhile, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis emphasized the value of certain aspects of the Iran nuclear agreement, even as Trump considers pulling out of the deal, which he has attacked repeatedly and this week called "insane". French President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday he had discussed a "new deal" with Trump in which the United States and Europe would tackle outstanding concerns about Iran beyond its nuclear program.Trump has said that unless European allies fix the "terrible flaws" in the Iran nuclear deal by May 12, he will refuse to extend U.S. sanctions relief on oil-producing Iran.Macron made clear that France would not follow the U.S. lead if Trump decides to withdraw from the agreement.
