President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron shovel dust onto a freshly planted oak tree as first woman Melania Trump and Brigitte Macron watch on the South Garden of the White Home in Washington, D.C., April 23, 2018.
"I don't know what the USA president will decide on the 12th May", Macron told reporters in Sydney after meeting Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on a rare visit by a French president to Australia.
Following calls with Macron, both Germany's Angela Merkel and the UK's Theresa May agreed an emphasis had to be placed on preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
He also reiterated that the JCPOA is non-negotiable, adding that Iran will not accept any further commitments beyond the nuclear deal.
The French president, for his part, said France and other European parties support the JCPOA and Paris will remain in the deal resolutely.
In a conversation lasting more than an hour, Macron also proposed that the discussions be broadened to cover "three additional, indispensable subjects", his office said, citing Tehran's ballistic missile programmes, its nuclear activities beyond 2025 and "the main regional crises" in the Middle East.

Newly appointed U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday, after a meeting with foreign ministers at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, that he was working to address Trump's complaints about the Iran nuclear accord, and that Trump would quit the deal unless there was "a substantive fix".
"President Trump's been pretty clear: This deal is very flawed".
Trump has until that date to determine if he will continue to extend sanctions relief on Iran with or without the side deal he has sought from his Western allies.
