The French and Israeli armies regularly swap information on Iran's nuclear program, according to French Defense Minister Herve Morin.
"We have to know what's going on so we exchange our information," Morin said.
Morin was responding to a question on RTL radio Thursday about a reported Paris meeting two weeks ago between the French, Israeli and US armies. He did not respond directly to that claim, saying only that France consults "happily" with its partners.
The remarks came a day after a draft agreement in Vienna with Iran, France, Russia and the United States that foresees the export of Iran's low enriched uranium to Russia for further enrichment to power a Teheran research reactor.
