France’s foreign ministry suggested on Monday that new sanctions could be imposed on Iran if needed over its ballistic missile program, Reuters reported.
“As you know, the European Union has already placed sanctions on Iranian entities involved in the ballistic program,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Agnes Romatet-Espagne said.
“If needed, new sanctions could be taken,” she said.
According to her, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian will be in the Saudi capital later this week and intends to travel to Iran before the end of the month.
“The political dialogue between France and Iran is active and makes it possible to address all topics, including strategic and regional issues,” Romatet-Espagne said. “Mr Le Drian will have a firm dialogue when he goes to Iran.”
