President Nicolas Sarkozy kicks off the annual “ambassadors’ conference” in Paris Wednesday, bringing together some 200 French ambassadors and diplomats. This year’s address is expected to focus on the Arab Spring and the Middle East peace process.
Some 200 French ambassadors and diplomats from around the world have gathered for their annual address from the president Wednesday, at the “ambassadors’ conference” in Paris.
It comes just a week after French-supported opposition forces in Libya took control of Tripoli.
And its theme has been carefully chosen: “Diplomacy in a changing world, France as an agent of change”.
