French Ambassador to the United Nations Gerard Araud warned of a "strong" risk of a military strike on Iran if it proceeds on the path to nuclear proliferation, AFP reported on Wednesday.

"If we don't succeed today to reach a negotiation with the Iranians, there is a strong risk of military action," AFP quoted the French envoy as saying in a New York panel discussion.Araud added that he is convinced "some countries won't accept [the] prospect" of the Islamic Republic reaching the threshold of nuclear armament, according to the report.
