The Trump administration previous year withdrew from the nuclear deal negotiated with Iran under President Barack Obama and began imposing layers of punishing sanctions on Tehran that have strangled its economy.
Tensions with Iran have escalated since Trump pulled the United States out of the pact past year and moved to bar all global sales of Iranian oil.
Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has made it abundantly clear that Iran's next move will be to forgo the limit on the level of enrichment, presently capped at 3.67 percent, which is a major proliferation concern.
The White House says Trump and Macron also talked about the Group of 20 summit that just concluded in Japan, as well as Trump's meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
In recent days Britain has sharpened its tone towards Iran, the result, diplomats say, partly of talks during the American President's recent visit to London, but also because of aggressive Iranian actions, which have included shooting down a us surveillance drone and, according to the Trump administration, mining half-a-dozen tankers in the Gulf of Hormuz.
"How many Iranians - I know a lot of Iranians from New York City, and they're great people". President Trump tweeted that Tehran was "playing with fire".
Oil dips on demand worries even as OPEC, allies extend cuts
The U.S. -China trade conflict has pressured global markets, stoking worries about demand for commodities such as crude oil. Oil rose the most in a week after Iran became the latest OPEC member to back an extension of as long as nine months.
"Seriously?" he said in a one-word message on Twitter, after White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement that "there is little doubt that even before the deal's existence, Iran was violating its terms".
By banking low-enriched uranium, Iran is "trying to pressure Europe" to deliver sanctions relief, Brumfiel says.
However, Iran could have chosen to mix the low-enriched uranium with raw uranium, diluting it and bringing it down under the cap. "That is not the case". "Iran has faced an unprecedented and unthinkable US sanction pressure, effectively meaning a total oil embargo, an attempt to strangle a sovereign state". But they have held off on declaring the agreement void or announcing sanctions of their own.
He referred to a paragraph of the accord dealing with the dispute resolution mechanism. Iran has demanded they guarantee it the access to world trade envisioned under the deal. But few Iranians are willing to attach too much importance to it, primarily because it is expressly limited to the exchange of "humanitarian goods", which are exempted from the US sanctions in the first place. Other officials, including Trump, have shifted U.S.
Fallahatpisheh further stated that Iran expects INSTEX to bring back oil sales to what they were before the U.S. reapplied sanctions.
"No one should be uncertain about our desire for peace or our readiness to normalise relations should we reach a comprehensive deal", Hook said last month, briefing American lawmakers at a Congress panel.
In early May, Iran said it would invoke Article 36 of the JCPOA.
It added: "We must restore the longstanding nonproliferation standard of no enrichment for Iran.The United States and its allies will never allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons".

A big challenge for Tesla has been how to deliver its vehicles efficiently and swiftly to customers around the world. Earlier this year, Tesla said it would turn a profit in the second half of 2019, later than earlier projections.
President Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Monday that Iran is "playing with fire" as it threatened to pursue weapons-grade uranium as soon as July 7.
In the two months since the sanctions were tightened, the confrontation has taken on a military dimension, with Washington blaming Tehran for attacks on oil tankers, and Iran shooting down a United States drone, prompting the aborted USA air strikes.
Tehran, which has sought to pressure the remaining parties to save the deal, announced on May 8 it would no longer respect the limit set on its enriched uranium and heavy water stockpiles.
"This is not an irreversible step the Iranians have taken". All the sanctions will remain, with no way out for Iran.
And while President Trump has signaled he'd like to make a deal with the Iranians, Iran has shown no sign it wants to negotiate.
"This does not in and of itself reduce the breakout time period, which is essential here", she said. In the end, European Union member states always prioritise their relationship with the USA over their relationship with Iran, even if the former is primarily responsible for the current crisis.
"Actions by the Europeans have not been enough, so we will move ahead with our plan", he said. Washington also blames Iran for attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf, something Tehran denies. "Israel can not tolerate a nuclear armed Iran".
