Macron Holding US Responsible If Iran Leaves Nuke Deal

On Wednesday, Tehran gave Europe 60 days to ensure Iran’s interests were protected under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Otherwise, Tehran is ready to take further steps on scrapping the JCPOA, it warned.

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday that Washington would be responsible if Iranian authorities abandon the nuclear deal.

“Firstly, Iran did not withdraw this deal. Secondly, if Iran withdraws from this deal, it will be the responsibility of the United States. We will not mix the roles and say that it’s the Europeans,” the French leader said at a press conference following the informal summit of EU leaders in the Romanian city of Sibiu.

Macron pretends to hold “Great National Debate” while targeting protestors with live ammo and helicopter-deployed tear gas.

Macron’s remark follows the Russian Foreign Ministry’s announcement made earlier in the day that the United States must terminate any activities that hamper political and economic cooperation of other countries with Iran. This statement was made shortly after EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini noted that the European Union remains committed to the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the nuclear deal signed with Iran in 2015, as long as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirms that Tehran acts in accordance with the deal.


London Acid Attack Leaves Three Hospitalized

Three people were hospitalized in London Tuesday following a suspected acid attack in the west end of the city.

Police say the attack, which involved a “noxious substance,” occurred in Westbourne Grover shortly after 2 p.m.

“We were called at 2:10 p.m. today to reports of a noxious substance attack on Westbourne Grove,” a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

The London Fire Brigade, according to U.K. newspaper Daily Express, dispatched 10 firefighters to make sure the area was decontaminated.

A spokeswoman for the London Ambulance Service added that a “hazardous area response team” was also sent to the scene.

“We also dispatched our hazardous area response team,” the spokeswoman said. “We treated three people at the scene and took them to hospital.”

At current, no arrests have been made linked to the attack.

Acid Survivors Trust International, a non-profit organization working to end such attacks worldwide, says the U.K. has one of the highest rates of acid attacks per capita in the world.

London in 2017 saw 465 “corrosive liquid” attacks as compared to 397 the year prior, notes Scotland Yard.

Experts warn the number could even be higher as some victims may refrain from reporting the incidents out of fear.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, called on the government last year to implement a “zero tolerance” policy towards the attacks.

Critics argue that Khan has failed to prioritize the city’s rising violent crime rate.

The U.K. government has been working with retailers in an attempt to find whether certain restrictions can be placed on bleach and other corrosive substances.


Macron tells Marr that France would LEAVE EU if French voters had a vote in referendum

Asked about the Brexit vote, the candid president told Marr: “I am not the one to judge or comment on the decision of your people.

“But, my interpretation is that a lot of the losers of globalisation suddenly decided it was no more for them.”

Marr then pushed the French president, regarded by many as the EU’s new leader, on whether Britain’s decision was a one-off.
