PARIS, France (AP) -- French President Jacques Chirac said Friday that there is no contradiction between Russian nuclear cooperation with Iran and Europe's negotiations with Tehran on its suspected nuclear weapons program.
"There is no contradiction between the Russian position and the position that Britain, Germany and France together are negotiating, trying to negotiate," said Chirac at a joint news conference with the leaders of Russia, Germany and Spain.
Chirac greeted Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday at the Elysee Palace, where military guards in plumed hats stood at attention. The two leaders were having lunch one-on-one -- an opportunity for Chirac to raise difficult issues without putting Putin on the spot in front of others
