Le Drian said he had held a telephone conversation on Saturday with German foreign minister Heiko Maas and senior Chinese diplomat Wang Yi.

"We all noted, in particular, our agreement in the importance of preserving the stability and sovereignty of Iraq, and the whole of the region in general, as well as the need for Iran to avoid any new violation of the Vienna Agreement," added Le Drian.
