France and Weapons of Mass Destruction

South Pacific is not France's property

I REFER to the letter headlined, 'Australia being hypocritical', which appeared in the South China Morning Post, on September 20.

Australia being hypocritical

I DO not think that Japan is in a position to condemn the French nuclear tests so strongly.

After all, the Japanese were allies with Germany in World War II, when the Nazis invaded France. It was this experience which made France decide after the war, that it wanted its own deterrent.

Island nations reject nuclear testing safety claims

SOUTH Pacific island countries have rejected claims that French nuclear testing in the Pacific will have no effect on them, despite a report by Australian and New Zealand scientists that the health risk is minimal.

No need for more bomb tests

AS long-term French residents in Hong Kong we feel we must add our voice to the present outcry regarding the proposed French nuclear tests in the Pacific.

Not violating any international convention

THERE have been reports and letters in the South China Morning Post recently, concerning the resumption of nuclear tests announced by the French Government. In several instances, what has been said does not reflect the true situation and I feel compelled to set the record straight: In resuming its tests, France violates no international convention or commitment.
