US President Barack Obama and French President Nicholas Sarkozy on Saturday again mutually called for Iran not to develop a nuclear weapons program. Speaking with reporters after a meeting Saturday, Obama said he appreciates Sarkozy's leadership on a host of issues and reaffirmed that there must be "tough diplomacy" with Teheran on this issue. Sarkozy said he agreed with the US president's call for Israel to stop building settlements in the West Bank, and said he worries about "insane statements" by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Obama said he and Sarkozy will work "in close collaboration" on many issues, including anti-terrorism strategy.
