Francois Nicoullaud was French Ambassador to Tehran between 2001 -2005. This is the time which Europeans began the initial negotiations with Tehran over its nuclear program. Mr. Nicoullaud has written numerous articles about Iran and specifically the nuclear case in the past years. Hannah Kaviani who covered the Nuclear talks for Radio Farda spoke to Ambassador Nicoullaud.
Why do you think France is so active, more than other Europeans to try to save the Iran nuclear deal ?
Do you think that the Europeans will succeed in convincing Mr.Trump to stay in JCPOA?
Do you see any particular indication which would lead you to think there is still a chance to save the deal?
In case Europeans don't reach an understanding with the U.S, what impact can it have on the transatlantic relations?
Do you think business relations with Iran are so important for Europeans that they would risk their relations with the U.S.?
