US and France hint at new Iran nuclear deal.

US President Donald Trump and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron have suggested there could be a new agreement on Iran's nuclear programme. After talks in the US, Mr Trump, who is sceptical of an accord that was struck in 2015, spoke about "doing a much bigger, maybe, deal". Mr Macron said a new pact must cover Iran's ballistic missile programme and its role in the Middle East. Iran warned of "severe consequences" if the US withdraws from the deal.
