US President Donald Trump on Sunday denied signing off on a joint G7 message to Iran over its nuclear programme as announced by his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron.
"No I haven't discussed that," Trump told reporters on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Biarritz, France.
This contradicted Macron who shortly beforehand had said the G7 countries "agreed on what to say to Iran".
Trump said: "We'll do our own outreach. But you can't stop people from talking. If they want to talk, they can talk."
