"It is a pity that the United States is not honoring its commitments, Iran must show its political maturity," Le Drian said on Saturday in an interview published online by Le Parisien.
The remarks came after Iran announced earlier this month that it would suspend some commitments under the deal. The announcement came exactly a year after the US withdrew from the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
"Iran has had a bad reaction, faced with a bad US decision to withdraw from the Vienna agreements and impose sanctions," Le Drian added.
He also warned against a "bellicose spiral", stressing the "responsibility" of the Americans and the importance of dialogue with Tehran.
