France Says It Will Keep Pressuring Iran Over Nuclear Programme

 – France and its partners will add pressure on Iran over its nuclear programme to ensure it respects its international obligations, the French presidency said after President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday.

The French presidency statement, just hours after European powers submitted to the U.N. nuclear watchdog’s board of governors a resolution against Iran, also said Macron had told the Israeli prime minister of his deep concern regarding the trajectory of Iran‘s nuclear programme.

“He underscored that France, with its international partners, would put pressure on the Iranian regime to respect its international obligations,” the statement said.
