France Hails 'historic' Jet Sale To Egypt Despite Rights Concerns - Yahoo News

Didier Billion of the Paris-based Institute of Strategic and International Relations said that site after years of http://collinpale.sosblogs.com/The-first-blog-b1/Kanye-West-Teases-only-One-Video-On-ellen-Ewcom-b1-p313.htm failure to sell its jet, "unfortunately France would have accepted selling to any country. . . you can have the best product in the world but if you can't sell it there is no use." [source] He criticised a "lack of coherence" in France's policy of selling weapons after it delayed the sale of a warship to Russia which Paris accuses of backing the separatists in eastern Ukraine, putting at risk a 1.2-billion-euro contract. Sisi was elected president in May 2014 with 96.91 percent of the vote a year after toppling the country's first freely elected leader, Islamist Mohamed Morsi. A subsequent crackdown on Morsi's supporters left at least 1,400 dead and thousands more in jail "Unfortunately it is the Egyptian people who pay the price. We can shut our eyes over the rights situation in Egypt but we can't shut our eyes over Russia, because Russia is at the centre of an international power struggle," said Billion. "We can see morals and international relations don't mix well." - 'Confident' of India deal - French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian will head to Cairo on Monday to sign the contract, and the first delivery is due this year of the fighter jets which had been destined for the French airforce, while a frigate destined for the French marines will instead be sold to Egypt.
