PARIS - French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Wednesday that recent declarations from Iranian leaders appeared not to favour an international deal on the country's nuclear programme.

"France wants a deal but wants the deal to be robust," he said, referring to efforts to build on the strands of a potential deal recently hammered out with Tehran."Since then there have been a number of statements that do not seem to go in that direction," he told reporters.
