The French White Paper on Defence and National Security
President Nicolas Sarkozy has presented on 17 June the White Paper on Defence and National Security. This document defines the objectives and choices of the French defence and national security for the 15 years to come as well as the framework in which it will develop until 2025.
For now, the White Paper is available only in French. But, while waiting for its ongoing translation, a press file in English can be viewed and downloaded here.
