France Says It Is Coordinating Response to Iran Uranium Announcement

PARIS, April 13 (Reuters) – France said on Tuesday it was coordinating a response with world powers, including the United States, after Iran said it would begin enriching uranium at 60%.

The French presidency said the Iranian move was a “serious” development and needed coordination with the remaining parties to a 2015 nuclear deal, and Washington.
