France and Germany said to deliver the same messages on trade and Iran’s nuclear deal when they meet US President Donald Trump next week.
French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel held a news conference after their meeting in Berlin on Thursday.
Macron expressed concern about heavy tariffs imposed by the Trump administration on imports of steel and aluminum.
He said France and Germany respect multilateral frameworks and rules of the World Trade Organization.
