Iran - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (29 June 2017)


Q - The minister says that Iran must respect the complete sovereignty and integrity of its neighbors. Beyond this rhetoric, do you have a strategy to convince Tehran to change its position?

A - France is attached to the development of political dialogue with Iran and Jean-Yves Le Drian is in regular contact with his counterpart in order to address the regional situation. This point will be discussed during the meeting between the minister for Europe and foreign affairs and Javad Zarif on June 29.

The only way to put an end to the conflicts in the region is through a diplomatic solution. Iran must constructively engage in these efforts. The Vienna agreement demonstrated that the most complex questions could be resolved through diplomacy.
