France and Libya have signed a memorandum of understanding on the construction of a Libyan nuclear reactor for water desalination, a senior French official says.
The announcement comes shortly after Libyan Foreign Minister Abdel Rahman Shalgham said the two countries were to sign a military-industrial accord and an agreement on civilian nuclear energy.
The deal also comes as French President Nicolas Sarkozy flew in for talks with Libyan leader Moamer Khaddafi, a day after Tripoli's release of six foreign medics in a move that cleared the way for trade deals with the oil-rich state.
Mr Sarkozy has touted his visit of less than 24 hours as a "political trip" to help Libya's reintegration into the international community after decades of sanctions and isolation.
How do you say prostitute in French?
Pariah state today, pristine state tomorrow...
France, leading the way to absolution... one despot at a time.
Say, how many weeks will it be before we find that Mo
hamarhair is enriching nuclear waste...
I give it about thirty...
I think this is exactly the right solution to impoverished N African refugees in Europe. Put them to work at home.
Take the nuclear applications out of it and I wouldn’t mind at all.
During the cold war we severely limited movement of populations between Russia and here. We watch all diplomats and considered everyone to be a spy.
Today we allow tens of thousands to come here from terrorist states and don’t bother to check them out at all.
If we lose our freedom/nation etcetera, we won’t be able to blame anyone but ourselves.
Answer: Chirac (and Sarkozy in his footsteps, boy that did not take long).
