France: No More Troops

France will not send any more troops to Afghanistan and wants instead to see an enlarged Afghan army, President Nicolas Sarkozy said in a newspaper interview released on Thursday. The United States is considering sending up to 40,000 additional troops to Afghanistan and has urged its NATO allies to do something similar.

He said it is necessary to stay in Afghanistan? And to stay to win. "But France will not send one more soldier."
