PARIS - France is treating Iranian overtures to the international community over its nuclear programme with "caution" and is waiting to see concrete proposals on sensitive activities, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Thursday.

"We are waiting for substantive change," Fabius told parliament. "Given what he know on Iran, the Guide (Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei) being the same, we are compelled to be cautiously open."

The United States on Wednesday described two days of nuclear talks with Iran as the most serious to date after diplomats said Tehran hinted it was ready to scale back sensitive atomic activities to secure urgent sanctions relief.
