Fabius Sets Condition for DealFabius Sets Condition for Deal

France’s foreign minister said on Wednesday his country would not back any nuclear deal with Iran unless it provided full access to all installations, including military sites.

“France will not accept (a deal) if it is not clear that inspections can be done at all Iranian installations, including military sites,” Laurent Fabius told lawmakers, Reuters reported . Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei last week ruled out international inspection of military sites or access to nuclear scientists under any nuclear agreement. Fabius said he wanted other countries negotiating with Iran in the framework of the so-called P5+1 - also including Britain, China, Germany, Russia and the United States - to adopt France’s position.
