The EU-Ukraine summit in Paris must have left Le Petit Prince [read: Yushchenko] reading Les Misérables.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy: This association agreement [to be signed in 2009] does not close any paths, nor does it open any paths. That’s all we could give.
Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko: We very much appreciate what we reached today.
Sure, Euro-beggars can’t be Euro-choosers. Especially if you come to the negotiation table in such a grotesque disarray.
In the meantime, let our oligarchs buy a little more of Monaco. Maybe then we’ll have our chance to join the EU?
It appears that the original Sarkozy quote,"Cet accord d'association ne ferme aucune piste, même il en ouvre," meant, "This association agreement does not close any route, it even opens some." (H/t Neeka, Genia)
Well, let's see what that means in practical terms.
