Macron Urges Rouhani to Prevent More Tension in Wake of IRGC Blacklisting

French President Emmanuel Macron called on his Iranian counterpart Hassan Roubani to prevent more tensions in the wake of the U.S. blacklisting of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

According to a statement issued by the French presidency, Macron urged the Iranian president to “avoid any escalation or destabilization of the region" during a phone call on Tuesday.

For his part, Rouhani described the terror designation as “very provocative, dangerous and unprecedented in international relations”.

A statement issued by Rouhani's office noted that the latter had asked Macron to help speed up a European trade initiative that would facilitate business dealings between Iran and European Union countries.
