Macron urges Rouhani to show restraint, postpones FM's visit

French President Emmanuel Macron urged his Iranian counterpart in a phone call on Tuesday to show restraint in dealing with protests, Reuters quoted Macron’s office as saying in a statement on Wednesday.

The statement said Macron had expressed his concern to the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani over the number of casualties in the six-day-old protests, and told him that freedom of speech and protest must be respected.

Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian’s planned trip to Tehran later this week was also postponed to a future date, the French presidency said.

Iranian media said Rouhani had asked France to act against opposition exiles working against the Iranian Mullah's regime from Paris.
