BIARRITZ, France - G7 leaders agreed that President Emmanuel Macron should hold talks and pass on messages to Iran after they discussed the issue at a summit in southwestern France on Saturday evening, a French presidential source said.


The source said the priority remained to prevent Iran obtaining nuclear weapons and defuse tensions in the Gulf.

"As president of the G7, the president did indeed get the power to discuss and send a message to Iranian authorities on the basis of the exchanges we had last night," the French official said, without providing any details.
