French FM in Tehran to persuade Iran to cut down on missiles

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves le Drian is in Tehran, sent by the European Union for a mission that might rescue the 2015 nuclear accord from President Donald Trump’s plan to dump it in May. The FM came to persuade Iranian leaders to curtail their ballistic mission program and their military intervention in Syria and Yemen, a mission impossible since they have announced adamantly that none of these issues were open to discussion. On Sunday, President Emmanuel Macron tried talking his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, round to meeting the French foreign minister half way. The French president is intent on mediating between the Trump administration and Tehran.

      dude don’t be so prejudiced. the french are one useless country never won a war in history. and why the hell would Iranians give up the missles to pave the way for US to once again implement a coup like when they did with Mosadegh?
