Text by FRANCE 24 (with wires)

Latest update : 2009-09-11

French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero say they have reached a common stance on financial regulation and climate change ahead of a G20 summit in the United States later this month.

French president Nicolas Sarkozy and his Spanish counterpart José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero expressed their shared views on financial regulation and climate change at a meeting at the Elysée presidential palace in Paris.

 

The meeting was designed to allow the two nations to compare notes ahead of a G20 summit to take place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the US on September 24 and 25.

 

At a joint press conference, Sarkozy declared, “France and Spain are preparing for the summit in Pittsburgh with the same intention to create a new world, and we are particularly concerned with the question of financial regulation and bonuses.”

 

He added that the two nations would also “work together to make the Copenhagen conference on climate a success,” referring to the international conference on climate change in December.
