France said on Friday that if talks with Iran on Nov. 29 appeared to be a "sham" then

negotiators would have to consider the nuclear deal devoid of substance.

"The first check we will have to do is whether we are continuing the discussion where it left off in June with the previous Iranian administration," Jean-Yves Le Drian said in an

interview with le Monde, referring to when negotiations resume on Nov. 29 between Iran and world powers.

"If this discussion is a sham, then we will have to consider the JCPoA Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) empty."
