ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: French President Francois Hollande met his Iranian counterpart on Tuesday (September 23) and said afterwards that he hoped for a swift agreement on Iran's nuclear program. "The president hopes the negotiations can end quickly," a statement from Hollande's office said after he met Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the United Nations General Assembly. France and five other world powers are negotiating with Iran over the nuclear program that the West suspects has military aspects, something Tehran denies. "Iran must put in place concrete measures that show in a certain and verifiable way that it will not acquire a military nuclear capability," the statement added. Iran dismissed on Tuesday as "fabricated ambiguities" suspicions that it has carried out nuclear arms research. Iran says its nuclear program is a peaceful quest to generate electricity so that it can export more oil and gas.
