In an interview with iTele, Le Monde and Europe1, Fabius said on Sunday that Iran's new President Hassan Rouhani was elected to make a change.

“We say yes to the use of nuclear power, but no to nuclear weapons because this would result in an extremely dangerous nuclear proliferation in general, especially in this eruptive region," he said.

During the annual meeting of the UN General Assembly held recently in New York, Rouhani promised to open a new diplomatic chapter with Western powers and pledged to address the standoff on the nuclear issue in one year.

Despite Tehran's diplomatic efforts and soften rhetoric, Fabius expressed concerns that Iran could continue nuclear production despite of talks with major powers.

Iran has been a target of UN sanctions due to its alleged attempts of building nuclear weapons. The West accuses Iran of developing nuclear weapons under cover of civilian nuclear programme, which Iran had denied.
