(JNS) France has proposed an incremental $15 billion package to Iran in exchange for the regime adhering to the 2015 nuclear deal, reported the semi-official Iranian Tasnim news agency.
An Iranian delegation was in Paris earlier this week to finalize the details of the financial lifeline, which would assist Iran amid crushing U.S. sanctions, reported The New York Times, citing Iranian press reports and a senior U.S. official.
The French government has declined to share the details of the agreement.
French President Emmanuel Macron called on U.S. President Donald Trump last week at the Group of Seven, or G7, meetings in Biarritz, France, to return to the negotiating table with the Iranians. Trump, in response, said there’s a “good chance” the United States and Iran could negotiate.
However, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani replied that the regime will not meet with the United States until Washington lifts all sanctions against Tehran.
