French FM: Force against Iran would be destabilizing

PARIS - Military attacks on Iran's nuclear program could create a "totally destabilizing" situation in the region, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe stated on Sunday, saying France would instead harden sanctions.
"We can still strengthen them (sanctions) to put pressure on Iran and we are going to continue along this path because a military intervention could create a totally destabilizing situation in the region," Juppe told Europe 1 radio.
"We must do everything to avoid the irreparable," he said.
