LONDON - Britain is working closely with allies to address issues relating to Iran, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa said on Wednesday, giving British backing to French President Emmanuel Macron's talks with US President Donald Trump.

"We are working closely with our allies on how to address the range of challenges Iran poses in the Middle East, including those issues that President Macron proposed a new deal might cover," the spokesman said.

With deadline looming next month for Trump to decide on restoring US economic sanctions on Tehran, Macron said on Wednesday he spoke to Trump about a "new deal" in which the United States and Europe would tackle the outstanding concerns about Iran beyond its nuclear program.
