France will not give up nukesA world that seems suspiciously like it is getting more dangerous rather than less.
France will not give up nuclear weapons because doing so would "jeopardise" its security, President Nicolas Sarkozy said this morning as global leaders gathered for a summit on nuclear security.
"I cannot jeopardise the security and safety of my country," Sarkozy told CBS News here hours before US President Barack Obama opened the landmark summit of 47 nations in Washington.
The French leader said he could not abandon his nation's nuclear weapons programme "on a unilateral basis in a world as dangerous as the one in which we live today".
