Sakorzy Changes His Mind

Following hot on the heals of the announcement by President Bush that he will attend the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics 8 August, President Sarkozy of France has fallen into line and said that he will attend as well.

Sarkozy was the first world leader to threaten to miss the opening, in protest at China's crackdown in Tibet after riots and protests there in March.

Sarkozy has now told Chinese President Hu Jintao that he would attend the ceremony on August 8.

The President's Office issued a statement that said that France wants to "deepen its strategic partnership with China".

Money matters, especially when there is an Airbus contract in the offing!
