French President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday that he hopes for a meeting in coming weeks between US President Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Speaking alongside Trump on Monday, Macron said G-7 leaders had agreed that Iran needs to meet its nuclear obligations and that there was a hope for a diplomatic breakthrough in the tensions that have grown since the US left the 2015 nuclear accord.

Macron spoke at the end of the G-7 summit in Biarritz, France.
