    Perhaps Sarkozy really is interested in improving relations with Washington:

    It's sure that The president Nicolas Sarkozy wants to improve the US-France relationships.

    he never hide it, he likes USA. He's more liberal than Chirac, the former president, on a economical point of view.

    But one thing : he's also for improving the EU (see the "minitreaty" about the Constitution).

    And the travel of Kouchner doesn't mean that France will change about the Iraq crisis. Bernard Kouchner went to Iraq because it's a real mess, a real hell. so the french diplomacy has to went here. Kouchner has also a great experience of the troubles zones, the quotation above said it. He was UN administrator in Kosovo and made a good job here for the UN. He is the co-foundator of a world wide humanitary associations. So he was the best person for this travel in a destroyed country.
