Reuters - French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian on Friday reiterated his demands for Iran to release French-Iranian academic Fariba Adelkhah, whom Iran has sentenced to six years in prison on national security charges.

Today, I once again formally demand on behalf of France the immediate liberation by Iran of Madame Adelkhah, Le Drian said in a statement.

This ongoing situation can only have a negative impact on the bilateral relations between France and Iran, and can only significantly reduce the trust between our two countries, he said.
