At today's meeting of European Parliament Nicolas Sarkozy, the President of France, said that France, the country chairing in the EU for six months, and the European Commission did everything to avoid Georgian-Ossetian crisis growing into war. Sarkozy made this statement concluding the results of France's presidency in the organization, which expires on January, 1st , ITAR-TASS informs.


"In that situation our chief aim was to halt war," Sarkozy noticed. "The European Union had to assume responsibility for the developments, which we did. In August we, first of all, held the talks on ceasefire and then on troop pull back. In the long run war had been avoided and troop withdrawal started," he said.

"Now almost all Russian troops left the territory of Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia," French president said. "The European Union has thus signified its responsibility without getting involved in the aggressive policy regarding our Russian neighbors."
