Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday said that French offer for talks with America is broadly accepted.

Iranian cabinet meeting was aired on Iranian national TV.

Iranian President shared his views on French Plan during the cabinet meeting.

Hassan Rouhani said that they accept the French offer for talks but some words should be changed.

Rouhani said France had prepared a plan whose “core could have been acceptable” because it required Iran to agree never to acquire a nuclear weapon and emphasized peace in the area and its waterways.

He also said that while U.S. officials were telling the Europeans in private calls that they are ready for negotiations, they were saying in interviews that they were going to tighten sanctions on Iran.

“We will continue the reduction of commitments and must continue with complete seriousness,” Rouhani Said.

Iranian officials have said they will reduce their commitments under the nuclear deal until the remaining signatories fully meet their commitments.

Last month, Trump announced that he had ordered a substantial increase in sanctions on Iran after it warned the United States that it would retaliate against any attacks.

Rouhani also cleared that UK, Germany and France were agreed who signed the Iran atomic agreement in 2015.

On Wednesday the warning was made by European Union during the EU’s meeting that if Iran continues the threats then EU will give up from this agreement later on November.
