Iran - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (15.12.17)


Q - Do you support the U.S. proposal to work toward establishing an international coalition to push back against Iran?

A - Our approach is constant: We are attached to rigorously implementing the JCPOA as agreed upon by all parties; we note with concern Iran’s activity in the region and the continuation of its ballistic missile program. President Macron and the minister for Europe and foreign affairs have repeated this on several occasions.

These issues must be handled separately within the framework of a rigorous dialogue with the Iranian authorities which we hope will be productive. It is in this context that Jean-Yves Le Drian will visit Iran in the near future.

Our approach is to talk to everyone in the region.

Our goal is to de-escalate tensions in order to resolve the crises.
