PARIS (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy discussed Iran's nuclear program over the phone on Saturday, Sarkozy's office said in a statement.

"The two heads of state noted that they share exactly the same views..." the statement said.

Western powers are scrutinizing Iran's atomic work amid concerns that Iran might be trying to develop nuclear weapons. Iran says all its atomic work is peaceful.
