“It is necessary to take fully into account Israel’s security concerns and those of the region,” Fabius told France Inter radio in Geneva early on Saturday at the beginning of the third day of the talks.
The news comes amid Israel’s deep anger over the likelihood of an agreement between Iran and the six world powers in the course of the ongoing nuclear talks.
On Friday, Netanyahu “utterly” denounced a possible agreement in the course of the nuclear talks as “very, very bad.”
This is while Israel, which is the sole possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East with 200-400 warheads, has repeatedly threatened to launch a military strike against Iran over the country’s nuclear energy program.
Israel’s salvo of threats and accusations against Iran comes as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has never found any proof during its numerous inspections of Iranian nuclear facilities to.
Fabius also noted that there is “no certainty” whether Iran and six major world powers will reach an agreement at the current stage of their nuclear negotiations.
“There is an initial draft that we do not accept ... I have no certainty that we can finish up” at this stage, he said.
The French foreign minister also said there were many questions that still needed to be settled.
The negotiations between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the United States, China, Russia, France and Britain- plus Germany over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear energy program began in Geneva, Switzerland, on Thursday. The US secretary of state and the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany joined the talks on Friday.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, his US counterpart John Kerry and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton held trilateral talks also on Friday in the Swiss city.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi, who is also a member of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team, described the meeting as “productive.”
He added that the talks, which are aimed at hammering out a draft deal on Tehran’s nuclear case, are set to continue on Saturday
