France is pressing for international sanctions strong enough to paralyze Iran over its nuclear policy, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said in an interview with l'expresse magazine.

"France is advocating sanctions on a scale that would paralyze the regime: freezing of central bank assets and an embargo on hydrocarbon (oil) exports," he said.

Sanctions that hit Iran's central bank and oil exports, as the United States and Britain were starting to implement, were the way to go, said the minister, who acknowledged that things were moving less rapidly at wider international level.
