PARIS (Reuters) – Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s comments about France are “unacceptable” and complicate nuclear negotiations, a French government spokeswoman said on Wednesday as world powers sought to agree curbs on Iran’s atomic program.

Spokeswoman Najat Vallaud-Belkacem was speaking as world powers met in Geneva for talks with Iran after Khamenei attacked France’s tough stance on a potential deal, which he showed French officials were “not only succumbing to the United States, but they are kneeling before the Israeli regime”.
