Reuters reports that French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe voiced skepticism on Wednesday that resumed talks between the six world powers and Iran would succeed. He said Tehran was not sincerely willing to negotiate about the future of its nuclear program.

“I am a little skeptical … I think Iran continues to be two-faced,” Juppe said to France’s i-Tele television.

“That’s why I think we have to continue to be extremely firm on sanctions, which in my view are the best way to prevent a military option that would have unforeseeable consequences,” he said.
