Tehran (ISNA) - French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has called on Iran to show a constructive stance in talks to be held in Vienna next week.

Following a call with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif on Saturday, Le Drian said in a statement, "I encouraged Iran to be constructive in the discussions that are set to take place. They are meant to help identify in the coming weeks the steps that will be needed in order to return to full compliance with the nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action".

He claimed that France would be pragmatic and demanding in the negotiation process.

Zarif, for his part, urged France to show a constructive stance on the JCPOA in next week's meeting in Vienna and called on France to honor its commitments under the accord, and to cease abiding by illegal sanctions imposed by the US.
