PARIS  — France's prime minister has urged resumed Mideast peace talks and offered "constant and unfailing support" for Israel's security.

Francois Fillon's office says he offered French backing in talks with visiting Israeli President Shimon Peres.Fillon called for a "resumption, without delay, of the peace process."

Fillon's office says he and Peres expressed concern about Iran's nuclear ambitions and urged quick, strong new sanctions "to make Iran change its behavior."

France has helped lead a push for new sanctions over activities that western powers fear are aimed at making nuclear bombs but that Tehran says are aimed at producing energy.

Peres began a three-day visit to Paris on Tuesday.
