Sarkozy warns Iran of ”catastrophe”
French President Nicolas Sarkozy warned Iran on Thursday that its determination to continue with its nuclear development risked an Israeli strike that would be a "catastrophe." "Iran is taking a major risk by continuing the process of seeking nuclear technology for military ends," Sarkozy said at a four-way summit in Damascus with the leaders of Syria, Qatar and Turkey.
"Because one day, no matter which Israeli government is in power, one morning we will awake to find Israel has attacked," Sarkozy said, according to AFP. "It's not a question of whether it is legitimate or intelligent or not... It would be a catastrophe, and we must avoid such a catastrophe."
