French Foreign Minister threatens Irish "NO" voters

France's Foreign Minister has warned that Ireland will be "the first victim" if voters reject the Lisbon Treaty in this Thursday's referendum.

In an interview today, Bernard Kouchner says Ireland had benefited more than others from the EU and Europe should be able to count on the Irish for support.

He says Irish voters would only be punishing themselves if they voted 'no'.
