Sarkozy to Jewish group: Iran solution ‘not military’

The best way to deal with Iran is through diplomacy and not military action, said French President Nicolas Sarkozy to a Jewish group at an event in Paris on Wednesday.

Speaking at the annual dinner of the Conseil Représentatif des Institutions Juives de France, the Jewish umbrella group better known by its acronym CRIF, the president said he believed the recent round of sanctions against the Islamic Republic would yield beneficial results.

“The solution is political, the solution is diplomatic, the solution is in sanctions,” he said.

Sarkozy, who is known for his support of Israel, said he also wanted to deliver the Islamic Republic a message that it had “crossed a red line” by its insistence to continue developing its nuclear program despite international condemnation.
