In Israel on Monday, the French Socialist presidential candidate Segolene Royal said she would press the international community to ban Iran's access to nuclear power entirely if she is elected next spring. Her position goes far beyond the French stance of pressing for a halt to uranium enrichment there, and it even contradicts the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which says a peaceful nuclear program is acceptable. Royal said Iran was not to be trusted, and that a civilian nuclear program there would permit a military one. "All those who think the contrary show their naivete, and I'm not naive," she told reporters. Similar comments on Iran in the past have led critics to pounce on her, saying she needed to brush up on her knowledge of international treaties.
