France Warns Iran About Nukes

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.
