At a time when the United States is going its own way in ditching the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate accord, as well as threatening allies with punitive trade tariffs, Macron said Europe stands at a critical juncture.

In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel says her country, France and Britain will remain committed to the nuclear deal with Iran, despite USA pull out of the agreement.

"I think yesterday showed us that we in Europe will have to take more responsibility", Merkel said at a conference of district chairpersons of her Christian Democratic Union. "This is our task for the nearest future", - say media, quoting Merkel.

"Reports about last night's Iranian attacks against Israeli army posts from inside Syria to which Israel responded by striking against Iranian targets in Syria are extremely worrying", the Spokesperson for the EU External Action Service said in a statement.




"We come from different political pasts, but we find common ground, and that is the magic of Europe", she said.

Expectations of a regional flare-up were stoked by Mr Trump's announcement on Tuesday that he was withdrawing the United States from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

He said he would have speak with US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin by the end of the week to "explore what the possibilities are" to avoid the sanctions, including possible exemptions.

"What's most important is to maintain stability and peace in the Near and Middle East", he stressed.
