From Reuters: French President Francois Hollande has asked former foreign minister Hubert Vedrine to review France’s membership of NATO’s integrated military command , his office said on Wednesday, echoing unease about its place in the alliance’s inner circle. . . .
Hollande also asked fellow Socialist Vedrine, who opposed France’s return to NATO’s inner circle, to review France’s relationship with the United States over the next decade. Vedrine is to report back by the end of October. (photo: Sipa)
