Chirac in Algeria: World should put more pressure on Iraq
French President Jacques Chirac said Monday that the world must put "strong pressure" on Iraq and force it to disarm through peaceful means.
Chirac, speaking before parliament during his three-day visit to Algeria, said the U.N. weapons inspectors probing the country for weapons of mass destruction should have "the time necessary to make their mission a success."
"But Iraq must cooperate more, more actively," he said, according to AP. "Together and in peace, we must keep strong pressure on it to attain the objective we have set: the elimination of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq." (Albawaba.com)
