Report: France Rewords Ban on Iranian Oil

France reworded the announcement of its ban on Iranian oil imports, Thursday evening, to say that the ban will be "in coordination with our European partners," according to Iran's Press TV. Originally, the French foreign ministry said, “We will apply this at a national level.”

The ban proposal is in response to growing evidence that Iran's nuclear development program includes the production of an atomic weapon.
