Barack Obama wrote to Jacques Chirac

Barack Obama wrote a letter to Jacques Chirac to express his desire to "work" during the four years of its mandate, it was learned Friday from the family of former President, confirming information published by "Le Figaro" .

"I am confident that we can over the next four years working together in a spirit of peace and friendship to build a safer world," writes the American president to the former French president in the letter addressed via the U.S. Embassy in Paris, in response to the message of congratulations from Jacques Chirac on his election.

The entourage of Jacques Chirac assured that we should not see this implied a tribute to the action of the former French president against the war in Iraq, but an allusion to his current fight with the head of his foundation the dialogue of cultures.

Jacques Chirac does not travel in the United States as part of its foundation, although no date is fixed, according to his entourage.

This attention to Barack Obama for Jacques Chirac could annoy Nicolas Sarkozy, who despite his best efforts has not yet met the new tenant of the White House since taking office.

The two presidents will be in London on April 2 at the summit of the G-20 on the reform of capitalism, then 3 and 4 April at the NATO summit in Strasbourg and Kehl.
