She explained that Iran's return to the Vienna Agreement is a necessary condition for the Biden administration to reconsider it, and said, "The Vienna Agreement is essential so that Iran never acquires a nuclear weapon." She also stressed that the Vienna agreement should be expanded to include stopping Iran's missile programs.

On the Turkish issue, the Paris Foreign Ministry said Turkey must be a responsible neighbor by deeds, not words.
