The spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry lashed out at the French president for his “unconstructive” comments about Iran during his meeting with the Israeli premier in Paris, Tasnim reported.

In a statement on Friday evening, Nasser Kanaani deplored the repetition of “unconstructive” statements by French officials.

He said French President Emmanuel Macron’s meeting with prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, “which is known in the world as the embodiment of the ominous phenomenon of organized terror, violence, carnage and displacement of oppressed women and children in West Asia, including Palestine, deserves to be deplored and censured.”

Kanaani added that the French president criticizes Iran's peaceful nuclear activities at a time when he has apparently forgotten that Israel has dozens of nuclear warheads, but does not tolerate any international oversight and, having a dark record of occupation and military aggression, is the gravest threat to regional and international peace and security.

The spokesman stressed that it would be appropriate for France to make the world aware of how Israel’s “terrorism accessed nuclear arms instead of expressing fake concern about Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities that are under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency,” Iranian the foreign ministry’s website reported.

Kanaani advised the French officials to correct their wrong approach, return to the principle of mutual respect, and stop damaging bilateral ties.

His comments came after Macron warned in a statement on Thursday that Iran’s nuclear activities “would inevitably have consequences.”
