Iran's inflexible stance on curbing its nuclear program should lead the US and European nations to implement "decisive sanctions" against the Islamic Republic in the coming months, AFP cited French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian as saying on Friday.

According to AFP Le Drian said the Western nations should pressure the advancement "in quantity and quality" of Iran's uranium enrichment program through sanctions and dialogue.

In regards to accusations of Tehran's use of stalling tactics at the IAEA talks and parallel negotiations with world powers, Le Drian said that "[more] than ever we have a responsibility to defeat this strategy of procrastination and concealment to ensure nuclear non-proliferation," he was quoted as saying during a talk at a Washington think tank.
