PARIS – French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier on Thursday urged Iran not to resume suspended nuclear operations, warning that to do so would incur “consequences.”

“We continue to hope that Iran will not take this step, the consequences of which it is well aware,” Barnier said.

Any decision to start converting uranium would “be counter to the Paris agreement and resolutions adopted by the International Atomic Energy Agency. We want to get this position across to the authorities in Tehran,” he said.

Tehran earlier threatened to resume uranium conversion work, a precursor to uranium enrichment, in defiance of an agreement reached in November after talks with France, Germany and Britain.
