France expressed concern about Iran's first domestically launched satellite on Tuesday. French Foreign Ministry spokesman Eric Chevallier said that his nation was "worried that there is ... the development of capacities that can be used in the ballistic framework." One of the worries associated with Iran's fledgling space program was that the technology used to launch satellites could be used to deliver warheads. French officials declined to say where France received its information about the satellite, but they did confirm that a launch had taken place.
