PARIS (AFP)--France's foreign minister said Thursday that Paris will recognise Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election as president of Iran but also build ties with the opposition movement ranged against him.
Addressing lawmakers during a parliamentary question session, Bernard Kouchner said that as Ahmadinejad had been proclaimed president in Tehran it would be " useless and counterproductive" for France alone to reject this.
But he also called for France to continue to support an opposition movement " with a future among the Iranian people," to "multiply our contacts with it, and continue to oppose what's going on in terms of nuclear energy.">>>
