"There's a better chance" now of finding a way out that would satisfy the international community and respect Iran's rights, he said.
"There is a fundamental problem: Can the world accept today that one country, whatever it is, could deliberately launch a process leading to the production of nuclear weapons? The vast majority of the world answers 'no' to this question," Chirac said. "There is already enough proliferation" , reports the AP.
