French President Nicolas Sarkozy condemned Iran's nuclear program on Friday and said France would not stand idly by 'if Israel's existence were threatened'.

Sarkozy was speaking at a G20 summit of world leaders days before the scheduled release of a United Nations report expected to offer intelligence pointing to possible military dimensions of Iran's nuclear program.

The report, however, is expected to stop short of declaring that Iran is attempting to develop nuclear weapons.

"Iran's behavior and this obssessional desire to acquire nuclear military (capability) is in violation of all international rules, and France condemns firmly the lack of respect for these rules," he said in the French Riviera resort of Cannes.

"If Israel's existence were threatened, France would not stand idly by."
