Melania stood alongside her husband, Donald Trump, and French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte.

"France will not be leaving the Iran Deal", Macron told Congress, noting that it was the U.S.'s idea in the first place.

Pompeo said he would pick up where his predecessor Rex Tillerson left off working with European allies to try to strengthen the Iran nuclear deal. The third line of it states: 'Iran commits to never developing nuclear weapons.' There is no time restriction on that. Not now. Not in five years.

Emmanuel Macron had a busy few days on his state visit to the U.S., but he still had time to grab some selfies.

To many, Macron's remarks suggested he was staunchly defending the JCPOA. "And the Republicans see France as a valuable military ally who brings respect for their embattled American president". Macron said humans are "killing our planet" and added: "Let us face it: There is no Planet B".

Their talks also covered the US presence in Syria weeks after the United States, France and Britain launched air strikes in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack blamed on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Acknowledging that the deal was not flawless, the French centrist said: "It is true to say that this agreement may not address all concerns and very important concerns..."

Earlier, Mr Macron forcefully challenged numerous US President's policies, urging the US to engage more with the world and step up the fight against climate change.

The two nations leaders, Emmanuel Macron and Donald Trump, have demanded a new accord to curb Iran's ballistic ambitions.




The others would address the period after 2025, when certain clauses concerning nuclear activities will end; Iran's highly controversial ballistic missile programme; and its "destabilising" role in the region.

Iran has said it will ramp up its nuclear program if the deal collapses and a senior Iranian official said Tehran might quit a treaty created to stop the spread of nuclear weapons if Trump scrapped the agreement.

Outgoing US House Speaker Paul Ryan, right, and Vice President Mike Pence talk on the floor of the House after Macron's speech. Saudi Arabia's foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, in a quick reaction to Trump's statement during press briefing along with Macron, said Qatar must pay for the U.S. military presence in Syria if it wants to sustain Washington's support. "I am sure one day the United States will come back and join the Paris agreement", he said. "It may happen, like in all families", Macron said. "But I don't think it changed anybody's mind about anything, and it's certainly not going to change policy".

He highlighted the joint cooperation needed in Syria, even as Trump has said he wants to withdraw troops.

"He said in there that he believes in free and fair trade". He emphasized strengthening cooperation and using "results-based" multilateralism to address current global threats.

"Our commitment, the United States' commitment to the collective defense under Article 5 of the Washington Treaty remains ironclad", he said.

A former U.S. Army officer and Republican congressman who served for the past 15 months as Central Intelligence Agency director, Pompeo is regarded as a loyal supporter of U.S. President Donald Trump who shares Trump's hawkish world views.

"He was decrying isolationism, nationalism and stoking anger and fear".

"Macron will probably have to say to [EU partners] Germany and to Brussels, "we'll not do as well this year as last year".
