The French officials spoke to Iran’s envoy that Tehran must honor its responsibilities to the milestone atomic deal signed with world powers in 2015 and make progress to de-escalate strains in the Gulf region.
US-Iran tensions keep on ascending over a progression of assaults by Iran in the Gulf and proceeding with the US sanctions on the Iranian economy after Washington pulled back from the agreement a year ago.
In a statement, the French Foreign Ministry said Seyed Abbas Araghchi gave a message to President Emmanuel Macron from Iranian President Hassen Rouhani. Mr Macron and Mr Rouhani talked last Thursday.
The Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, who met Mr Araghchi, is operating with European partners on a search mission to guarantee sea security in the Gulf, where strains have risen after Iran’s seizure last Friday of a British-flagged oil tanker.
Mr Le Drian made no notice of a European led “maritime protection mission” reported a day ahead by his British partner, Jeremy Hunt, offering rather what is by all accounts a milder version.
France is operating as of now on a European initiative along with Britain and Germany, he told legislators, without explaining. “This vision is something contrary to American activity, which is … greatest pressure” against Iran. According to international media.
Iran’s seizing of British oil tanker Steno Impero and its 23-crew on Friday increased strains that were already mounting.
Lately, before the seizure, Iran had begun openly exceeding the uranium enhancement levels set in the understanding to attempt to pressure Europe into balancing the financial distress of US sanctions.
Mr Le Drian focused on the requirement for the diplomacy to de-escalate unpredictable tensions, which he has said already could prompt “a mishap”.
Mr Araghchi, during his visit to Paris on Tuesday, said Iran intended to verify the Strait of Hormuz and not permit any unsettling influence in transportation there.
Iran’s case is muddled by allegations of attacks against six oil tankers, including the seizure of the Stena Impero.
The Netherlands, Denmark, France and Italy to continue the European-led maritime mission to guarantee secure shipping through the Strait of Hormuz, according to the Reuters.
