France's priority is to stabilize the Middle East, French Junior Foreign Affairs Minister Amelie de Montchalin said on Friday after a US air strike killed Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Commander Qassem Soleimani.


“What is happening is what we feared: tensions between the United States and Iran are increasing,” Montchalin told RTL radio. “The priority is to stabilize the region.”


The minister said top French officials would make high-level contacts with senior players in the region.
