Teheran has summoned France's charge d'affairs to protest recent tough talk made by French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, Iran's state-run television reported Wednesday. Last month, Kouchner said the world should "prepare for the worst" in Iran, specifically "war." Amid criticism, Kouchner later softened that, insisting he just wanted to underline the gravity of the Iranian nuclear problem. "Kouchner, in unrealistic and irresponsible remarks, has accused the Islamic Republic of Iran of seeking to obtain a nuclear bomb," the broadcast said, adding that the charge d'affairs was summoned to Iran's Foreign Ministry to receive a formal protest over his remarks.
