Israeli information on Iran could underscore need for long-term assurances - France
Petroleumworld 05 02 2018
France's foreign ministry said on Tuesday that an Israeli intelligence haul on Iran's past nuclear weapons programme could form the basis of a push for long-term assurances on Tehran's nuclear activities.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unveiled on Monday what he said was evidence of a secret Iranian nuclear weapons programme that could encourage the United States to pull out this month of a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.
“This information should be studied and evaluated in detail,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Agnes von der Muhll said in a statement.
“The new information presented by Israel could also confirm the need for longer-term assurances on the Iranian programme, as the president has proposed.”
Since travelling to the United States last week, French leader Emmanuel Macron has spoken to leaders in Israel, Russia, Britain, Germany and Iran to propose a new negotiation on a wider agreement.
