France: Iranian comments complicate nuclear talks

By Associated Press

POSTED:



PARIS (AP) — The French government spokeswoman says President Francois Hollande believes comments by Iran's supreme leader about Israel are "unacceptable" and complicate talks between world powers and the Islamic regime over its nuclear program.

French government spokeswoman Najat Vallaud-Belkacem told reporters that Hollande's Cabinet discussed the Iran nuclear dossier just hours before negotiations between Iran and six world powers were set to resume in Geneva. She said, however, that France still hopes for a deal and its position has not changed in the talks.

Hollande was referring to comments attributed earlier to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei speaking to a gathering of the Basij force, which is controlled by Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard. In them, the Iranian leader referred to Israel — "the Zionist regime" — as "the rabid dog of the region."
