Tehran, Iran, Jun. 29 – Comments by French Foreign Minister Philippe Doust-Blazy on Iran’s nuclear program have been greeted with joy by a state-run website, which described them as “a retreat by France”.

“After the implicit retreat by the German Chancellor, who said new proposals must be offered to Iran, France has retreated from its hawkish position on the nuclear program”, said the website Baztab, which belongs to former Revolutionary Guards Commander Mohsen Rezai.

Rezai is currently the secretary general of the State Expediency Council and is widely tipped to receive an important portfolio in the incoming administration of President-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

“The French Foreign Minister has said that Iran’s non-military nuclear program must not be suspended and we must negotiate with the Iranians to receive their responses”, Baztab wrote.

The website noted that French President Jacques Chirac stressed the need for a permanent freeze on Iran’s nuclear activities after his meeting with British Prime Minister Tony Blair earlier this month.
