Chirac: US reform plan amounts to ‘interference’

French President backs Egyptian leader in opposing Washington’s Greater Middle East initiative.

The two held talks after Mubarak arrived in Paris earlier Friday as part of a three-nation tour designed to warn key European partners of the dangers of the "Greater Middle East" initiative.
