France: Difficult to build a future with ‘unpredictable’ US, says ex-French PM Raffarin

Former Prime Minister of France Jean-Pierre Raffarin gave a wide-ranging interview for the RT SophieCo show on Sunday, in which he touched upon the nuclear deal with Iran, French-Russian relations, as well as US actions in the international arena. «Mr Trump’s unilateralism, notably the unilateralism which we saw with regards to Iran, which we also saw with regards to the Paris agreement... Еще regarding climate change, which we saw with regards to the American embassy in Jerusalem — all these unilateral decisions challenge, from my point of view, the quality of our transatlantic relations,” Raffarin said. Raffarin also stated his belief that a group consisting of France, Germany, Russia and China, where every country «plays their part,» can become a worldwide «axis of stability.» «There is one country called the United States, which is unpredictable. And it is very difficult to try to build a future with unpredictable partners. This is why today the eastward reorientation of Europe is a very strategic issue, and this is tied directly with the improvement of relations between France and Russia,» he concluded. Jean-Pierre Raffarin was prime minister of France from 2002 to 2005.
