"Along with our partners, we need to prevent tensions escalating in the region," Macron told Germany's ARD television, according to an interpreter's German translation.

"It is therefore necessary, as of today, to immediately broaden the topics of discussion to make it possible for all parties to move towards a broader agreement at some point," Reuters cited the president as saying.
