Blair meets Chirac

Tony Blair met Jacques Chirac today for discussions on the EU rebate. A frosty reception was expected from both parties, who are firm in their respective positions. The meeting was not televised and the traditional press conference was also put on hold. And the press conference with Tony Blair lasted only a short time due to technical problems. The Prime Minister described the meeting as “immensely amicable.” But he said differences had not been resolved and the situation was “difficult.” BBC
