French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner spoke regarding the Iranian nuclear threat while in Beiruit, the Daily Telegraph reported Monday. "[The Israelis] will not tolerate an Iranian bomb. We know that, all of us. So that is an additional risk and that is why we must decrease the tension and solve the problem. Hopefully we are going to stop this race to a confrontation," Kouchner told the London-based newspaper. "There is the time that Israel will offer us before reacting, because Israel will react as soon as they know clearly that there is a threat." The US, EU and UN are awaiting a response from Iran, expected to be delivered on Wednesday, to the proposal for out-of-country processing of uranium for the purposes of Iranian fuel production.
