A statement from the office of President Emmanuel Macron of France said, “We urge Iran to reverse all measures inconsistent with the agreement and return to full compliance,” according to Al Jazeera.

They also warned Iran against further violent actions, adding that peace and stability must return in the Middle East.

“We call on Iran to refrain from further violent action or proliferation, and we remain ready to engage with Iran on this agenda in order to preserve the stability of the region,” they added.

Following the killing of Soleimani by Trump’s order, the Iranian government had vowed to shatter the 2015 agreement and continue in its nuclear weapons programme.
