Chirac's New World Order
Chirac calls for overhaul of 'archaic' United Nations
The French president said the Security Council "is no longer really representative of the world today", and called for an increase also in the number of non-permanent members.
Chirac ... followed on from comments he made on Thursday in London suggesting the need for a new world order.
"It's the international community and the UN which, alone, has the power to say if intervention is necessary," he said.
"The principle of the right to intervention should be strictly laid down by international law which is expressed today through the United Nations."
