France ready to send special forces to Afghanistan

French President Jacques Chirac after a meeting with United States President George W Bush on Tuesday said his country is ready to send special forces to Afghanistan, provided they were involved in the planning of military operations.

Speaking at a news conference in Washington, Chirac said the request for 'additional troops' came from the US military chiefs of staff.

"We shall study it carefully," he said.

"We are altogether ready to send troops on condition that we know what missions they will be sent on and what kind of missions they are, and secondly that we are involved in the operational planning," Chirac added.

He added that France had already made 2,000 troops available for the war against terrorism declared by Bush after the September 11 attacks on the United States, but he did not elaborate.
