France's Foreign Ministry on Friday called Iran's expansion of its nuclear program to a second network of uranium-enrichment centrifuges a negative sign that should be taken to account at UN talks over possible sanctions. French President Jacques Chirac, meanwhile, expressed support for sanctions against Iran, but insisted that they be temporary and reversible. A semiofficial Iranian news agency reported Friday that Iran has injected gas into a second network and successfully enriched uranium. Enriched uranium can be used in nuclear reactors or nuclear weapons. "This constitutes a new signal that is in our eyes clearly a negative signal. We should take it into account in our evaluation of the dossier," Foreign Ministry spokesman Jean-Baptiste Mattei told a news conference.
