PARIS, May 1, 2006 (AFP) - French President Jacques Chirac met on Monday with George H.W. Bush, the former president and father of the current US leader, for discussions on matters of international concern, Chirac's office said.

Chirac and Bush "broadly discussed international issues of concern," spokesman Jérome Bonnafont said.

Bush, a Republican, served one term as president 1988 to 1992 before being beaten by Democrat Bill Clinton.

In his recently published memoir he described US relations with France as fundamentally strong, despite clashes between Paris and President George W. Bush's administration over the Iraq war.
