French President Jacques Chirac has said France will not stand aside in the international fight against the scourge of terrorism – but he said his country still had to determine and evaluate its contribution.
President Chirac was speaking after a meeting at the United Nations headquarters with UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
Mr Chirac said the fight against terrorism would be a modern and unknown form of war – but it had to be made an international priority.
President Chirac flew into New York from Washington, where he had become the first foreign head of state to meet President Bush since the attacks on the United States last week.
In New York, he flew over the area now known as Ground Zero, where rescue workers are clearing up the wreckage and recovering bodies from what remains of the World Trade Center.
Well, there is no need for Obama to send anyone… he already declared the war won. These guys must be like some of those Japanese soldiers bypassed on Pacific islands that never heard the war was over and to quit fighting.
