France’s Fabius voices caution about Iran nuclear deal hopes

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Wednesday that recent declarations from Iranian leaders appeared not to favour an international deal on the country’s nuclear programme.

“France wants a deal but wants the deal to be robust,” he said, referring to efforts to build on the strands of a potential deal recently hammered out with Tehran.

“Since then there have been a number of statements that do not seem to go in that direction,” he told reporters.
