France Calls for Fresh Start in Relations with U.S.

PARIS (Reuters) – France wants a fresh start in relations with the United States and both sides have much to contribute to a renewed transatlantic partnership, Foreign Minister Michel Barnier said in comments published Monday.

He made the remarks before a visit to Paris Tuesday by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice aimed in part at repairing ties damaged by the U.S.-led war in Iraq, which France opposed.

“The moment has come for a fresh start in our relations,” Barnier said in an interview with the French daily Liberation which was conducted late last week.

Gee… What a good idea.
