Paris –  France has condemned Iran’ missile strikes military bases used by U.S. forces in Iraq.

“The priority must more than ever be de-escalation,” Foreign Jean-Yes Le Drian says in a statement, adding: “The cycle violence must be interrupted.”

France – which did not condemn the U.S. strike that top Iranian general Qassem Suleimani in Iraq last week – in contact with all sides “to encourage restraint and responsibility,” Le Drian adds.
