France Seeks Verifiable DealFrance Seeks Verifiable Deal

Any deal with Iran has to be verifiable and there are no guarantees on this yet, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Thursday, Reuters reported. “We must be able to verify the sites,” Fabius told BFM TV. “We don’t yet have certainty on this.”

“We want a deal with Iran but ... the deal must be verifiable, solid, robust and today we don’t have guarantees on this,” he said. “A deal that cannot be verified cannot be implemented.”

Iran and the major powers reached a framework nuclear deal on April 2 in Lausanne and are seeking to strike a final agreement by June 30 under which Iran would temporarily restrain its nuclear program in exchange for relief from economic sanctions. “We are not yet at the end of the discussion,” Fabius said.
