Chirac changes his tune: Now says 'Iran's nuclear plan may lead to sanctions'Topics: Iran
French President Jacques Chirac has told Haaretz that if European negotiations with Iran fail to eliminate the threat of nuclear proliferation, then the issue will have to be moved to the UN Security Council. Observers say that this is the first time that Chirac has made statements regarding the possibility of imposing sanctions on Iran.
(...) Chirac also took a categorical and surprising stance against Hamas in the interview. "Hamas is a terrorist organization that cannot be an interlocutor of the international community, as long as it does not renounce violence and does not recognize Israel's right to exist. This is the unambiguous position of the EU and it will not change."
This is an 'improved' version of Chirac; back on April 13 he was singing a different true.
