Are we forgetting all the good this shadowy agency has accomplished? Snowden's revelations can't diminish its national security contributions
Had France not balked, the P5+1 group of world powers might have allowed Iran to get its foot in the door of the nuclear-armed clubhouse.
France has made a scheduled congressional hearing on Iran this week more interesting than promised.Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius early Sunday scuttled a deal pushed by the U.S. and other Western nations to get Iran to freeze its uranium enrichment in exchange for easing some crippling economic sanctions.
Talks between six world powers and Iran came to an end Sunday morning without a hoped-for deal to limit Tehran's nuclear research programs.
Iran's refusal to suspend work on a plutonium-producing reactor and downgrade its stockpile of higher-enriched uranium was standing in the way of an interim agreement to curb Tehran's nuclear program in return for easing of sanctions, France's foreign minister said Saturday.
Four world powers are dispatching their top diplomats to Geneva on Friday to add their weight to negotiations aimed at putting initial limits on Iran's ability to make atomic weapons.
France has summoned U.S. Ambassador Charles Rivkin to address claims that the National Security Agency has spied on millions of French citizens, authorities said on Monday.
Britain's U.N. ambassador says key powers have reached agreement on a resolution to eliminate Syria's chemical weapons arsenal.
The French foreign minister says an international conference to reach a political solution in Syria will include the opposition and will take place at the same time as the U.N. considers a detailed plan to eradicate Syria's chemical weapons program.
President Obama defended his tentative deal with Russia to confiscate Syria's chemical weapons as critics Sunday accused the president of caving to Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
Snipers opened fire Monday at a U.N. vehicle carrying a team investigating the alleged use of chemical weapons in Damascus, a U.N. spokesman said. The Syrian government accused the rebels of firing at the team, while a rebel representative said a pro-government militia was behind the attack.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has tossed into the ring of international possibilities for action in Syria a stark warning: If chemical weapons really were used, the world should react with force.
Soil samples collected from Syria and sent to France for testing confirm that sarin gas was used on multiple occasions, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Tuesday.
Two guards were injured in a Tuesday car bombing of the French Embassy located in Tripoli, Libya.
France is poised to add Hezbollah to the European Union's list of terrorist organizations after the group claimed responsibility for last year's attack on a bus filled with Israeli tourists to Burgas.
"One wants a deal," French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Sunday in Geneva as the latest round of negotiations over Iran's illicit nuclear program broke up, "but not a sucker's deal."
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told France-Inter Radio that his nation does not want to be part of a "con game."
