    A U.S. official said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has told his French counterpart a trip to Iran by French executives was "not helpful" and that it gave the wrong impression that the West could do business with Tehran as usual.

Iran welcomed more than 100 executives from France's biggest firms on Monday, the most senior French trade mission in years.
