Hadid sisters have fun in the sun at Coachella

CAIRO: Model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid seem to be having fun at the US-based music festival Coachella. Their social media posts show them spending time with friends, taking in the shows and devouring delicious food.

Gigi shared a shot of her younger sister Bella with legendary rapper Snoop Dogg on her Instagram story, during a brunch party hosted by American denim brand Levi’s on Saturday afternoon.    

Meanwhile, Bella filmed her sister, who decided to skip healthy eating, devouring two burgers in just three minutes. 

“This is her second quarter pounder in under three minutes and I’m not going to say she won’t eat another one,” Bella wrote on Instagram.

Berlin backs Macron’s Iran plan

  • Merkel will discuss Iran with Trump on a visit on Friday
  • Macron acknowledged that he does not know what Trump will decide

BERLIN, PARIS: Proposals presented by French President Emmanuel Macron on Iran’s nuclear deal are based on the existing international agreement but would add some new elements, a senior German official said on Thursday.

Speaking before Chancellor Angela Merkel heads to Washington for talks with US President Donald Trump, the official said: “The premise of Macron’s proposal is that the agreement remains in its existing form and additional elements come on top.” The official added: “In our view this agreement should be maintained.”

Trump has said he is not happy with the 2015 accord and may pull out of it. 

Iran’s President Hasan Rouhani insisted the deal cannot be changed or built on. 

The plan announced during Macron’s trip is part of European efforts to persuade Trump not to abandon the accord next month.

Merkel will discuss Iran with Trump on a visit on Friday.

The French president has meanwhile defended discussions with Trump for a new plan to curb Iranian nuclear weapons. Speaking to reporters before leaving Washington on Wednesday night, Macron said the new four-pronged agreement would be a “very important complement” to the existing 2015 accord.

Macron insisted on the importance of talking to all sides, including Iran ally Russia, and said the world should not force anything on Iran. He acknowledged that he does not know what Trump will decide.
