French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy says Iran's nuclear program is a "clandestine military project."

Douste-Blazy said in a French TV interview Thursday no civilian nuclear program can explain Iran's nuclear activities.

France and Russia have called on Iran to halt its uranium enrichment activities, which are initial steps in the process of producing fuel for nuclear reactors or atomic weapons.

Iran this week resumed small-scale uranium enrichment - a move it had threatened to take after the International Atomic Energy Agency decided earlier this month to refer the case to the U.N. Security Council.

The council is expected to discuss possible actions against Iran after it receives a report from IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei on March 6.
