French President Emmanuel Macron told his Iranian counterpart Ebrahim Raisi during a call Saturday that a nuclear deal was still possible but had to happen fast. 

Macron “expressed his disappointment at the lack of progress and insisted to President Raissi that a clear choice must be made to conclude the agreement and return to the implementation of its nuclear commitments,” according to a statement from Macron’s office.
