Just What Was France's Objective?

Note that despite the appearance that France was the only Western nation trying to force a hard deal on Iran, France caved with the rest of the West.

Which probably means that France was just holding out for better commercial deals with Iran, as I speculated:

Even though France has been strong on pushing for a real deal, I fear that this is just a negotiating ploy to get better side business deals with Iran to get France on board an agreement. Sorry to be that cynical, but there you go.

Whenever I think I'm too cynical, I find I am in fact too idealistic.
