Talks with Zarif “positive and will continue” (French presidency)

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Talks on Iran’s nuclear program between Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and French officials on the sidelines of a Group of Seven summit in Paris on Sunday afternoon were “positive” and “will continue,” the French presidency said.

The meetings lasted about three hours, first with Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, and then with President Emmanuel Macron for half an hour at the Biarritz municipality building.

The presidency announced the participation of German and British diplomatic advisers in part of the meeting.

At the end of the meetings, Zarif left Biarritz by plane.

Zarif’s arrival was “in agreement” with the United States, the presidency said.

“Everything was done in a few hours. Since that has been possible, we have informed European countries and the Americans,” she said.

She said Macron had personally told US President Donald Trump.

“I met Emmanuel Macron on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Biarritz after detailed discussions” with Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian and Finance Minister Bruno Le Mer, Zarif wrote on Twitter.
