Brown on Disarmament and France

Speaking in response to French President Sarkosy's announcement that France would rejoin NATO's military command structures, Gordon Brown refered to the prospect for nuclear disarmament:

"I do welcome France's announcement that at the NATO summit on April 3 and 5  ... they will announce that they will return to the inner core of NATO ..

"I also believe that there are opportunities for co-operation, not just between France and Britain, but between the rest of the world in nuclear disarmament"

He added that both Britain and France were keen that there should be a "wider deal" on nuclear arms in the next few years.
