US President Donald Trump and French counterpart Emmanuel Macron called for a “new” deal with Iran yesterday, looking beyond divisions over a landmark nuclear accord that now hangs in the balance.

Instead, Trump eyed a “grand bargain” that would also limit Iran’s ballistic missile programme and support for militant groups across the Middle East.
