DAMASCUS (Reuters) – French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said world powers would have to take new action against Iran in the next few weeks if Tehran continues to reject Western proposals on its disputed nuclear program.
Fillon said he was worried by a new report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) this week which said Iran may be working to develop a nuclear-armed missile.
“We have read the new report (on Iran) by the IAEA … and it is very worrying,” Fillon told a news conference in Damascus alongside his Syrian counterpart Naji al-Otari.
“We proposed dialogue to Iran for several months and for the moment all the propositions have been turned down,” he said. “If the situation does not change, we have no other solution but to look into new measures in the coming weeks.”
