France and its allies are willing to suspend the drive to impose UN Security Council sanctions on Iran if it takes positive steps toward resolving questions over its disputed nuclear program, France's defense minister said Friday. Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie said it was "very difficult to talk to Iran" becuase its officials may give the impression they're ready to change their stance, but then reverse themselves. "When the factions are getting close there's a diplomatic step forward by Iran and then on the following day or three days later, when we think we're going to get into the talks once again, they step back and they stiffen on behalf of the Iranian government or president," she said.
