If possible, please translate the following into French. As an American, I understand the international community's scepticism when it comes to American policy concerning nuclear weapons This is still the only country to such weapons in warfare. The previous administration renounced our long time policy of rejection of unilateralism and this one has not fully returned us to that policy. However, I believe the present Government of Iran poses a great threat to world peace and therefore its potential possession of nuclear weapons is a matter of grave concern. I am pleased that he UN has decided to move forward with sanctions but it is also my hope that intermediaries with influence can persuade both President Ahmadinejad and the ruling religious council that it is in everyone interests to seek and enforce an equitable solution that recognizes the legitimate concerns of all sides.
