France's foreign minister said his country could serve as a bridge between the "isolated" Iraqi government and the international community. Bernard Kouchner told an audience at the Council on Foreign Relations on Tuesday that France could no longer write off Iraq as an American problem, suggesting that European countries could play a role in improving the Iraqi judicial and health systems. Kouchner said when he spoke to Iraqis, he discovered they felt "the rest of the world was not considering working with them. They are completely isolated, and puppets in the hands of the Iranians."
