France to Continue “Firm”, “Frank” Dialogue With Iran

France says it wants to continue its "frank" and "firm" dialogue with Iran on various issues in the spirit of the nuclear agreement signed between Tehran and world powers in 2015. The French Foreign Ministry issued a statement following the visit of the country's top diplomat to the Iranian capital on March 5, saying that Jean-Yves Le Drian covered three main issues at his meetings, namely Iran's nuclear activities, its ballistic missile program, and its regional policies. 
Le Drian met with President Hassan Rouhani, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani and Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani. 
His trip was part of a European drive to salvage the nuclear agreement with Iran, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, while echoing concerns raised by US President Donald Trump who has threatened to scuttle the agreement. 
The visit was the first by an official in President Emmanuel Macron's administration.
