REFILE-France's Le Drian says more work needed with Iran over ballistics

(Fixes dateline)

TEHRAN, March 5 (Reuters) - French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Monday there remained “much work to do” with Iran over its ballistic missile programme and its role in regional conflicts.

Le Drian said after a day of tough talks in Tehran that France would continue discussions with Iran, adding that it was imperative to find a way to bring stability to region.

Le Drian was in Tehran on a delicate mission to reaffirm Europe’s support for a nuclear deal that opened Iran’s economy while echoing U.S. concern about Tehran’s missile programme and role in regional conflicts. (Reporting by John Irish Writing by Richard Lough Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
