Meeting between Laurent Fabius and the Iranian Ambassador (Paris, August 6, 2013)
Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius received Ali Ahani, Iran’s ambassador to France, on August 6. With the presidential elections having demonstrated the Iranian people’s desire for change, the minister indicated France’s hope that President Rouhani’s inauguration would open a new chapter in relations with Iran.
Noting President Rouhani’s expressed desire for dialogue, the minister emphasized that France, like its partners, is ready to work with the new authorities but that it expects concrete actions from Iran in response to international concerns about the aims of its nuclear program, its involvement in Syria and the human rights situation.
