Iran President invited to Paris in November: Fabius

Tehran: Iran`s President Hassan Rouhani has been invited to visit Paris in November, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said in Tehran on Wednesday.

The invite came in a letter addressed to Rouhani from French President Francois Hollande which Fabius delivered on his trip to the Iranian capital, two weeks after a nuclear deal was struck between the Islamic republic and world powers.

"I am the bearer of an invitation from the president of the French republic to the Iranian president to visit France if he wishes, in November," Fabius said during a press conference with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif.

If taken up, the trip would be Rouhani`s first to France as president.

As France`s chief diplomat in the nuclear negotiations, Fabius gained a reputation for taking a hawkish public stance on what Iran must do under an agreement to end the dispute over its nuclear programme.

However the French foreign minister started his trip to Iran by saying it was time to kickstart relations between the two countries following the nuclear deal.
