French MP: US Seeks Early Nuclear Settlement

A French lawmaker says the United States is keen to see a final deal be quickly struck between Iran and the major powers on Tehran's nuclear program.
"The Americans, for several reasons, seem eager to reach an agreement rather quickly," the head of the French parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, Elisabeth Guigou, said in a recent interview with Al-Monitor.
"It is the same for (Iranian) President Rouhani whose objective is also political: the lifting of the sanctions," she commented.
The French parliamentarian also said France acts as a "guardian" in the nuclear talks.
"In this context, I foresee that in the next round (of talks) France will continue to play its role of guardian given the serious nature of a likely agreement."
Guigou expressed hope that Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) would reach a final settlement to the long-running dispute over Tehran's nuclear work.
The French official said a possible comprehensive deal with Tehran would have a positive impact on French-European relations with Iran.
"As soon as the nuclear agreement is reached, we anticipate that our contacts will be more positive, and they might be more productive."
Guigou added, "Securing a good nuclear deal would allow this great country, which inherited from an ancient and prestigious civilization, to contribute to peace and stability in the region and at a global scale."
