Report: France's Sarkozy blasts Obama over Iran

Tuesday, October 28, 2008 |  Israel Today Staff

French President Nicolas Sarkozy fears that a Barak Obama victory in the upcoming US presidential election could irrevocably damage the West's already-feeble stance against a nuclear Iran, Israeli government sources told Ha'aretz.

The sources said that reports reaching them from Paris are that Sarkozy is harshly critical of Obama's positions vis-a-vis Iran's nuclear ambitions.

In remarks made behind closed doors, the French leader is said to have referred to Obama's stance on Iran as "utterly immature" and "empty of all content."

Obama visited Paris in July and discussed the Iran issue at length with Sarkozy. Following those talks, Sarkozy was said to be concerned that if elected, Obama would spurn the positions of France, Russia, China, Germany and the UK and engage in direct, unconditional dialogue with Iran.
