BIARRITZ, France (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday there had been “great unity” among G7 leaders on the question of how to deal with Iran at a summit in France and they had “more or less” come to a conclusion.

However, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, sitting beside him, said that while she and Trump had productive talks on Iran there was still a long way to go on the issue.
