Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani expressed regret over the recent anti-Iran remarks by French President Emanuel Macron, advising him to resolve his own country's problems and prevent murder of people in France.

RNA - "The French president's comments in his meeting with Mr. Trump were regretable and naïve. Such remarks from Mr. Trump are not unlikely but they do not match the contents he (Macron) conveyed in several meetings and phone talks he had with Mr. Rouhani (Iranian president)," Larijani said, addressing an open session of the parliament in Tehran on Sunday.

He said that apparently Macron adjust his statements to the interests of those he meets, and said, "If Mr. Macron is so much skilled in resolving the international problems and threatening other nations, he had better resolve the internal problems in his country to prevent so many deaths and injuries of the French nation (during Yellow Vest protests)."

In his meeting with Trump earlier this week, President Macron said France and the US want to reduce Iran's ballistic missile program, contain what he called as Tehran's regional ambitions and restore peace in the region.

According to Fars News Agancy, Trump and his French counterpart also said that they agreed that new negotiations with Iran were needed.

Macron is entangled in internal problems in his country.

The 'Yellow Vest' protest movement returned to Paris for the 29th consecutive week last Saturday, with a special focus on police violence and Macron's economic reforms. The protest was joined by nursing unions amid reports Lyon hospitals have been hit by workers' strikes in the past weeks.
