France said Tuesday it is increasingly exasperated with Iran's strategy in international negotiations on its nuclear program, and pressed for a quick answer as to whether Teheran will accept a UN proposal aimed at defusing tension. French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said Iran must make haste in its negotiations with the group of international powers - including the United States, Russia and France. The European Union's foreign policy chief, Javier Solana, who is also negotiating with the Iranians, said he hoped to have an answer to the latest UN-drafted nuclear plan aimed at easing tensions with the West by the end of the week. "We have been waiting for almost three year for the light at the end of the tunnel. And we still wait," said Kouchner ahead of a meeting of EU foreign ministers. The French minister also criticized Iran's overall strategy, which has dragged out international negotiations and has left the Western nations all too often off balance. Kouchner said it was no different this week. "I think they are losing time because it is now we have to talk," Kouchner said when asked whether the delay could be a ploy by Tehran to win time. "One day it will be too late."
