US President Donald Trump spoke to his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron over the phone and discussed the Korean Peninsula and Iran, according to the White House.
Trump updated Macron on the developments of the situation on the Peninsula, underscoring the “international resolve to achieve the complete denuclearisation” of the Peninsula, Xinhua news agency quoted the White House as saying.
Iran had earlier blasted the US’ stance on the demonstrations in the country, with its Ambassador to the UN Gholamali Khoshroo slamming the Trump administration’s attempts to intervene in the domestic affairs of the Islamic Republic.
Trump on Saturday said that he was willing to talk with Kim Jong Un and that he supports the upcoming talks between the two Koreas slated to take place on Tuesday.
“The Presidents also agreed that the widespread demonstrations in Iran were a sign of the Iranian regime’s failure to serve its people’s needs by instead diverting the nation’s wealth to fund terrorism and militancy abroad,” the White House said in a statement.
