France has been reminded by other euro zone countries that the French government need to respect their commitment to balance the budget by 2010. President Nicolas Sarkozy responds, however, that this “might not be possible” before 2012.
In other words, Sarkozy wants other euro zone governments to cut that much more of their public spending in order to allow France to spend more. That “might not be possible”, some other governments could say. I would.
