US President Barack Obama and French President Nicholas Sarkozy discussed ways to bring Iran "into compliance" with UN resolutions on its nuclear program ahead of diplomatic talks, Agence France Presse quoted the White House as saying.
"The two leaders discussed the status of diplomatic efforts to bring Iran into compliance with its international obligations on its nuclear program," a statement said after Obama and Sarkozy spoke over the telephone.
The call came ahead of an October 1 meeting between Iran and the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany set to test Iran's readiness to discuss concerns over its nuclear program, which Western governments and Israel suspect is a cover to build an atomic bomb, AFP reported.
