France wants to keep Iran nuclear deal alive, warns Tehran over negative actions

PARIS,, May 8 (Reuters) - France’s defence minister said on Wednesday it wanted to keep the Iran 2015 nuclear deal alive and warned that if Iran were to not keep to its commitments then the question of triggering a mechanism that could lead to sanctions would be on the table.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani earlier threatened to resume high level enrichment of uranium if world powers did not keep their promises under the agreement.

Speaking to BFM TV, Florence Parly said nothing would be worse than Iran withdrawing from the deal and that France, Britain and Germany were doing all they could to keep the accord alive. (Reporting by Sophie Louet; writing by John Irish; editing by Sybille de La Hamaide)
