"Our objective is clear. Not now not in five years, not in 10 years, never", he told lawmakers. "We signed it, both the United States and France".

Iran negotiated the agreement - providing for curbs on its nuclear program in return for relief from numerous sanctions weighing on its economy - with China, France, Russia, Germany, the United Kingdom and the USA in 2015.

Now, back to the reality of fixing France. "Let us not create new walls ourselves on the other side", Macron said.

French President Emmanuel Macron said he thinks US President Donald Trump will withdraw from the Iran nuclear accord, dealing a blow to the six-nation agreement reached in 2015 and endorsed by world powers. He acknowledged that the agreement does not address all concerns.

"It is true to say that this agreement may not address all concerns and very important concerns", Macron said. "I never said, 'I will convince Mr. Trump,'" said Macron, raising his fist and using a mocking tone.

"We have an agreement called the JCPOA", Rouhani said in a speech, referring to the nuclear deal formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

On the other hand, Macron, who wrapped up his three-day visit to the country said France was keen to develop a new nuclear deal with Iran until 2025, adding that he wanted limitations on the nuclear programme, in a bid to stamp out Tehran's "regional influence" in the Middle East.

"This is a deal with decayed foundations", he said. Trying to get even more concessions from Iran "might be a fool's errand", Rohac added.

But while Trump said at the time that he was open to such a broader agreement encompassing and going beyond the nuclear deal, he continued to voice strong opposition to the deal as he did during the campaign, calling it "insane" and "ridiculous".

Mr Macron's visit followed a private dinner between the two leaders and their wives at Mount Vernon on Monday night, a joint news conference in the ornate East Room and a state dinner - the first one Mr Trump has hosted as president.

Since President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Washington, D.C., on Monday for the first state visit of President Trump's administration, the French leader has tried to persuade the American president not to abandon the three-year-old nuclear agreement with Iran next month.

Macron's hour-long speech to Congress, delivered in English, provoked obvious delight from congressional Democrats, who erupted repeatedly in cheers and standing ovations for the visiting Frenchman - a contrast to the mostly silent reaction from Republicans in the House chamber.

Macron, in his remarks, called for the two countries to work together against Islamist militants, on North Korea and Iran, on "free and fair trade", and on climate change. "And I'm sure we can work together to fulfill with you the ambitions of the global compact on the environment".

He said: "I think this is what we've been agreeing upon today ..."

The French President also called on the United States to put efforts to restrain "fake news", which he noted was a "problem" in the nation, according to the report. You are the one now who has to help preserve and reinvent it.

He also addressed a point made by others - that withdrawing would undermine United States leverage and credibility in coming talks with North Korea about eliminating its nuclear weapons. "Clearly, an implicit rebuke to some of the president's attempts at mobilizing his base of support by playing on anger and fears", Rathke said.
