Russian President Vladimir Putin and French leader Emmanuel Macron on Monday called for the "strict observance" of the current Iran nuclear accord, with U.S. President Donald Trump still deciding whether to scrap the agreement.

As you know, the Makron in the United States, where he met with President trump.

The British diplomat's visit to Tehran comes as the May 12 deadline looms over the fate of the JCPOA when U.S. President Donald Trump will decide whether to extend waivers of economic sanctions on Iran, a U.S. commitment under the nuclear agreement.

The tree, a European sessile oak, came from the site of the Battle of Belleau Wood, which took place in the summer of 1918.

Newly appointed U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday, after a meeting with foreign ministers at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, that he was working to address Trump's complaints about the Iran nuclear accord, and that Trump would quit the deal unless there was "a substantive fix". A patch of grass now covers the spot where the tree was originally planted.

The chief of Europe's largest economy will campaign Trump for a pardon through a succinct functional pause at the White House on Friday.




As part of the ceremonies, the two leaders - along with their spouses - planted a tree on the South Lawn. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection guidelines, the tree needed to be quarantined before it could be permanently planted.

French ambassador to America, Gerard Araud, explained on Twitter that the tree must undergo a quarantine.

Over the weekend, however, it became apparent that the tree had gone missing from the White House grounds.

Before the visit, German officials said she saw little chance of stopping the tariffs Trump wants to impose on imports of European aluminium and steel on 1 May, even as Macron and EU officials suggest he may relent.

It's also been speculated by some horticulturists quoted in other reports that the tree may not be replanted until the late summer or fall so as to allow the sapling time to develop a stronger root system in order to withstand the heat and dryness that generally characterizes a Washington summer.
