French FM: Military strike against Iran unlikely

A military strike against Iran is unlikely even if it doesn't obey an international demand to stop enriching uranium France's foreign minister said Sunday during a visit to the United Arab Emirates' capital. "Any military strike against Teheran will have negative consequences on the region," French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy said at a joint press conference with his Emarati counterpart Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan. "It's important to defend the ongoing dialogue and dispute between [Iranian] President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Iranian political opponents," Douste-Blazy said in French translated into Arabic.
