FRANCE has waved the white flag across the Channel as Alain Juppé, the French foreign minister, called off the “war of words” with the British government.
A string of slurs has been directed at Parliament from Sarkozy’s team lately, prompted by Cameron comparing France’s economy to that of Greece, and his recent veto of a proposed EU treaty change.
Sarkozy reportedly likened the Prime Minister to a “stubborn child”.
While relations between Paris and London were “not as idyllic” as they once were, Juppé said, “There is not an ounce of doubt that Franco-British relations will become excellent once again. We have too much in common to allow them to deteriorate.
“I don’t think the bridges are broken,” he added.
