EU companies should be free to trade with Iran - Macron

France's President Emmanuel Macron stated on Thursday before the start of the European Union-Western Balkans summit in Sofia that European companies must be free to choose whether they will trade with Iran. The president added that Europe's trade sovereignty must be defended.

"We had a rich discussion on Iran. The nuclear agreement of 2015 is an important element of peace and security in the region, and we decided to support it, whatever the US decision was. We promised to take political measures that would allow our enterprises to stay in Iran," Macron highlighted.

Meanwhile, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that European Union member countries agree that Iran deal is "not perfect."
