President wants nation to prove it's not pursuing arms

|

French President Francois Hollande Wednesday said he wanted "concrete acts" from Iran to prove it was not pursuing a nuclear arms drive after his first face-to-face meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

At a news conference with Netanyahu, whose aim during a two-day visit to France is to seek more pressure on Iran, Hollande warned that Paris would back "other sanctions" if Tehran failed to convince on nuclear program.

"This is a threat which cannot be accepted by France," Hollande said.
