|France’s Fabius hopes Iran nuclear deal would be sealed||
TEHRAN – French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius says he hopes that Iran and the world powers would be able to clinch a deal on Tehran’s nuclear program.
“I hope we can find a solution.. .But our position is simple: Civil nuclear energy, yes. Atomic bomb, no,” Fabius said in an interview with The Washington Post published on Friday.
Iran and the world powers - the United States, France, Russia, China, Britain, and Germany - are negotiating on terms of a final agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program. The two sides have clinched an interim six-month deal according to which Iran agreed to curb parts of its nuclear activities in return for a limited easing of sanctions.
“Referring back to the negotiations we had, my position was to say we want to have an agreement, but it has to be a solid one,” the top French diplomat said.
He added that the Ukraine crisis have had no impact on the nuclear negotiation.
Fabius also acknowledged that “there can be some enrichment [for Iran], provided it is limited and not used for military purposes.”
