French Views on NATO's Summit

L'Express Magazine has published its thoughts on the first day of the NATO Summit, before it even opens. It notes that opinion on whether to offer Georgia and the Ukraine MAPs has broken down along the same lines as NATO's split over the Iraq War. France and Germany have led opposition. The US and its eastern European partners urging the Alliance forward.

It also expresses surprise that President Sarkozy, who promised a hard line against Russia during hos election campaign, has been quick to say that NATO must not offend Moscow on this matter.
