France did not ask European Union to consider new Iran sanctions

France did not ask the European Union to consider new sanctions on Iran at a meeting of foreign ministers in Brussels last week, EU diplomats and a French official said on Wednesday.

The diplomat said France's Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius was not present at the meeting.
