“Negotiations on the Iranian nuclear dossier are currently stalled on nuclear issues, but not on the relationship between Iran and the United States on a specific issue, US sanctions on terrorism,” he said.

“So there is a knot to solve if necessary” in order for Iranian oil to be “delivered to the markets,” the French presidency stressed. “Venezuelan oil must also be able to be delivered to the market,” he said.

These two oil-producing countries are subject to US sanctions.

France also supports the US proposal for a “price cap” on oil prices, but considers it necessary to extend it to gas and all market players.

“The principle of a price cap is acceptable, it can be supported, but the way it is implemented is quite uncertain. It must be as broad as possible,” the French presidency said, calling for “in-depth discussions”.
