By Staff, Agencies
US President Joe Biden and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron discussed several issues over the phone, the Elysee Palace said on Sunday.
During their first conversation after Biden's inauguration, the two presidents discussed "their willingness to act together for peace in the Near and Middle East, in particular on the Iranian nuclear issue," the French presidency said.
The statement added that the two were on the same page in regards to fighting climate change and COVID-19 coronavirus.
Describing France as America's "oldest ally," a White House statement added that Biden had pledged close coordination with Paris on climate change, coronavirus and the global economy.
It said Biden "stressed his commitment to bolstering the transatlantic relationship, including through NATO and the United States' partnership with the European Union."
Former US President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled Washington out of the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran in May 2018.
