Biden, Merkel, Johnson, Macron Meet In Rome To Discuss Iran


US President Joe Biden has met with the British, French and German leaders in Rome to discuss strategy and coordination regarding Iran's nuclear program.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Joe Biden met on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Rome to discuss the next steps on Iran's nuclear program.

The four posed for a group photo before they went behind closed doors for their consultations.

Biden's meeting with the leaders of Germany, France, and Britain - known as the E3 - comes at a pivotal time, as Iran continues to enrich uranium to near-weapons-grade levels.

Biden is trying to revive the 2015 nuclear deal and bring Iran back into compliance with the pact that would have kept the Islamic republic at least one year away from the potential to field a nuclear weapon.

US national security adviser Jake Sullivan said the meeting would feature the leaders “all singing from the same song sheet on this issue.”

Amidst tense relations between France and Britain over post-Brexit fishing rights, Johnson and Macron walked away from the photo with arms around each other.
