11-07-2011 09:29 BJT

TEHRAN, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) -- French Ambassador to Tehran Bruno Foucher said the tensions between the Islamic Republic and France could be resolved through talks, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported Sunday.

"We are confident that the issues could be resolved through talks," Foucher told ISNA as responding to a question on the existing problems between the countries.

France has called on Iran to take concrete moves in order to stop its nuclear enrichment program.

Tehran repeatedly insisted on the peaceful aspect of its nuclear program, but the United States and its Western allies worry that Iran would use the uranium enrichment to make nuclear weapons.

The French envoy added: "No one wants to deprive Iran from Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT) privileges. We just call on the country to fulfill its commitments."

"We hope Iran's nuclear issue would be resolved soon so that the two sides could continue economic cooperation. I am confident that it would happen soon," he was quoted as saying.
