French President Nicolas Sarkozy suggested tougher sanctions against Iran over its refusal to suspend nuclear activities, but insisted Thursday that France does not want to see tensions lead to war. Sarkozy accused Iran directly of seeking nuclear weapons and called the possibility of an Iranian bomb "unacceptable." France has been toughening its position on Iran since Sarkozy took over from Jacques Chirac in May, moving closer to the US position. Sarkozy was expected to discuss sanctions with other world leaders at the UN General Assembly next week. Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, meanwhile, was in Washington to meet with senior US officials - and to discuss Iran, among other joint concerns. If current sanctions are not sufficient, Sarkozy said, "I want stronger sanctions," he said in a televised interview.
