Hollande at the Knesset: France will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons

"France will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons," French President Francois Hollande said at the Knesset on Monday to roaring applause from the plenum.
"we have nothing against Iran or the Iranian people," Hollande clarified. "The Iranian people deserve civil nuclear energy, but we will not allow Iran to have nuclear weapons because that poses a threat to Israel and regional countries, but also to the world."
Hollande urged world powers to continue diplomacy with Tehran, but vowed not to allow sanctions ease until Iran gives up its military nuclear program.
