In his concluding remarks at the end of a three-day state visit to the U.S., French President Emmanuel Macron conceded that President Donald Trump will probably scrap the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, adding that such U-turns on international pacts would prove “insane” in long term.

Macron’s remark followed his impassioned speech in the U.S. Congress, where he frankly advocated many of the policies that Trump has sought to put an end to, writes The Guardian.

Trump has repeatedly poured scorn on the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran, calling for a broader international agreement to cover Yemen, Syria and other parts of the Middle East, notes the BBC.
