FRENCH PRESIDENT JACQUES CHIRAC ADRESSES NATION DURING TELEVISION INTERVIEW
French President Jacques Chirac answers newsmen in a television interview from the Elysee Palace in Paris, April 1, 2004. President Chirac says the government must take account of the message from recent regional elections' poll defeat. Chirac named Dominique de Villepin as interior minister and replaced him as foreign minister with an ally, Michel Barnier. Analysts expected no major shift in foreign policy but predicted a change in tone to help mend relations with the United States which were damaged by differences over the U.S.-led war in Iraq.
