U.S. President George Bush and French President Nicolas Sarkozy have
warned that a nuclear-armed Iran would pose a threat to global peace
The two leaders held talks on Saturday in Paris, after Tehran said
that Iran will not consider any offer that demands the country halt its
uranium enrichment program.
Mr. Sarkozy said Iran obtaining nuclear weapons would be
"unacceptable," while Mr. Bush warned that a nuclear-armed Iran would
be, in his words, "a major threat to world peace."
Mr. Bush also urged Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to halt
cooperation with Iran and to cease harboring terrorists. He expressed
strong backing for creation of a Palestinian state and urged the Syrian
leader to help with that process.
