France, Germany counter U.S. war talk
PARIS (AP) — Countering blunt talk of war by the Bush administration, France and Germany on ■ Wednesday defiantly stated they are Committed to a peaceful solution to the ' -Iraq crisis.
• “War is not inevitable,” French President Jacques Chirac told a historic joint session of the French and German parliaments.
“The only framework for a legitimate solution is the United Nations,” he said to resounding applause from .the more than 900 lawmakers marking 40 years of reconciliation between their once-hostile nations.
Earlier, after a joint meeting of the French and German Cabinets, Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder said the two countries “are entirely in ‘ ■ agreement to harmonize our positions more closely in favor of a peaceful solution of the Iraqi crisis.”
Chirac said both nations agreed that any decision to attack Iraq should be :, made only by the U.N. Security , Council, after U.N. weapons inspectors have reported their findings.
. ■ Rescuers dig in rubble after Mexico quake kills 25
, COLIMA, Mexico (AP) — Emergency crews dug into piles of collapsed cement and brick Wednesday to reach victims trapped by a powerful earthquake that killed at least 25 people, crumpling walls like paper, turning brick into powder and leaving steel reinforcement bars scattered like straws.
At least 300 people were injured in the 7.8 magnitude quake that hit west-, em Mexico, civil defense officials said. Among the dead were a 90-year-old man crushed by a falling lamppost in the Colima state town of Tbcoman and a 1-year-old girl killed by a collapsing brick ceiling in neighboring Jalisco state.
President Vicente Fox flew to Colima on Wednesday, where he spoke with state officials and toured the disaster area. “Let everyone in Colima know that we are with them,” he said upon arrival.
