Day two of nuclear talks just wrapped among Iran, the United States and five other world powers, and already negotiations have "hit a wall," France's foreign minister said.
France's foreign minister on Tuesday accused the Syrian government of President Bashar Assad of attacking its people with chemical weapons at least 14 times since last October, including as recently as a few weeks ago.
President Barack Obama on Wednesday urged Ukraine to avoid violence against peaceful protesters or face consequences, as the United States considered joining European partners to impose sanctions aimed at ending deadly street clashes that are sparking fears of civil war.
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.
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.
Britain's U.N. ambassador says key powers have reached agreement on a resolution to eliminate Syria's chemical weapons arsenal.
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.
It doesn't matter what the European Union says, British and France government officials say. They may go ahead and provide weapons to Syrian rebel fighters anyway.
France's foreign minister says the United States is providing communications and transport help for an international military intervention aimed at wresting Mali's north out of the hands of Islamist extremists.
France announced Tuesday that it plans to vote in favor of recognizing a Palestinian state at the U.N. General Assembly this week.
A top Syrian general's defection is the first major crack in the upper echelons of President Bashar Assad's regime, buoying a 100-nation conference Friday meant to intensify pressure for his removal, as well as an opposition desperate to bring him down but frustrated by diplomatic efforts.
France is pushing the United Nations to refer Assad and his top officials to the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, and Fabius said a U.N. Security Council vote could come as soon as Tuesday.
The suspected chlorine attacks, for example, "shows that the regime of Bashar Assad is still capable of producing chemicals weapons, and determined to use them," Fabius told reporters.
