Ahmadinejad: France and Iran Should Cooperate


Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called over the weekend for greater cooperation with France, saying that “there is no substantial disagreement between the Islamic Republic of Iran and France.” The time has come to “enhance bilateral relations” in order to strive for a “new world order based on respect and justice to  benefit all nations.”

Ahmadinejad made the statements as the new French ambassador to Iran, Bruno Foucher, presented his credentials. Foucher said that “We believe that if there is a disagreement between the two countries, we can find a solution to resolve it. Iran and France enjoy a historical relationship, and today we are determined to expand our relations with Tehran.”
