Merkel said that Europe can no longer rely on United States protection

Emmanuel Macron Donald Trump and Angela Merkel Europeans vow to keep Iranian nuclear deal

Mrs Merkel expressed concerns about the threat of war between Israel and Iran over Syria and said that Europe needed take control of its own destiny to confront global conflicts raging on the edges of the continent.

Paris: French President Emmanuel Macron spoke by telephone Tuesday with Donald Trump, just hours before the United States president is widely expected to pull out of a key nuclear deal with Iran, his office said.

The conversation was held two days after US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the country from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known as the Iranian nuclear deal. "That's the task for the future".

The statement said Merkel condemned the overnight attacks on Israeli positions "and called on Iran to contribute to de-escalation in the region".

But they are at odds on economics and finance, with Merkel reluctant to take steps - such as setting up a euro zone budget - that might lead to Germany carrying greater liability for other euro zone countries' problems.

Speaking after Merkel, Macron said that "We should not be waiting, we must do something right now".

The quandary was laid clear earlier Wednesday as Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Tehran would quit the deal unless European signatories offered solid guarantees that trade relations would continue after the U.S. withdrawal.

Macron echoed the call to flesh out Europe's common foreign and defense policy. "Other powers, just as sovereign as us, have decided not to respect their own word". "(But)... we will strengthen the euro zone, we will make it more competitive".

"We must succeed in building our own sovereignty, which in this region will be the guarantor of stability", he said.
