NICOLAS SARKOZY, PRESIDENT OF THE FRENCH REPUBLIC (2007–2012) EUROPE: QUO VADIS?

10:15-11:30 Pavilion G, Conference Hall G4
Moderator:
Sergey Brilev, Anchor, Deputy Director, Russia TV Channel; President, Bering-Bellingshausen Institute for the Americas

Highlights

Can we afford fighting each other? We have common routes, we share common feelings and values, we belong to one civilization. We need to protect Europe, make it more independent, have more peaceful relations.

Nicolas Sarkozy
President of the French Republic (2007–2012)

Europe has brought peace onto us and we will never accept the collapse of the EU.

Nicolas Sarkozy
President of the French Republic (2007–2012)

Sanctions are blocking solutions, positive trend is badly needed, everybody is suffering. We need peace initiatives.

Nicolas Sarkozy
President of the French Republic (2007–2012)

We should use our diplomatic efforts to achieve peace and stability in the Mediterranean Region.

Nicolas Sarkozy
President of the French Republic (2007–2012)

If we are separated, Russia and Europe, we will be lost from the map of Europe. If we work independently, no one will listen to us.

Nicolas Sarkozy
President of the French Republic (2007–2012)

The Cold War is over, NATO has no objective to fight against Russia. This confrontation between Russia and Europe is artificial and we have much more serious objectives to face.

Nicolas Sarkozy
President of the French Republic (2007–2012)

I believe that we need to work with Russia. It is something mandatory. Another Cold War is not in our interest. In spite of all difficulties, we have good history of relationships with Russia. I will work for this and fight for this.

Nicolas Sarkozy
President of the French Republic (2007–2012)
