F French President Nicolas Sarkozy has warned that a military strike on Iran would “trigger war and chaos in the Middle East.”
His comments come days ahead of a European Union debate on possible oil sanctions against Tehran over its disputed nuclear program and with tensions seemingly escalating between Iran and the West.
“Let me share two of my convictions with you,” Sarkozy said. “The first is that a military intervention would not solve the problem but it would unleash war and chaos in the Middle East and maybe, alas, even more than that. All must be done to avoid a military intervention.”
