Chirac was impressed with former BOOMTOWN RAT Geldof's organisation of 10 Live 8 concerts around the world, which aimed to raise awareness of poverty on the continent and said the gigs were particularly helping younger generations become aware of the issues.
The President's spokesperson quoted Chirac as saying, "It is a first step, modest but important because we open a door."
