France would respond firmly, possibly with non-conventional weapons, to any state-sponsored terror attack against it, President Jacques Chirac said Thursday in a speech reaffirming the need for the French nuclear deterrent. Chirac said France's nuclear strike force is "not aimed at dissuading fanatic terrorists." But he added that leaders of states who would "use terrorist means against us, just like anyone who would envisage using, in one way or another, arms of mass destruction, must understand that they would expose themselves to a firm and adapted response from us." "This response could be conventional. It could also be of another nature," Chirac said in the speech given at a nuclear submarine base in western France.
