Difficult to be optimistic about financial reforms: Sarkozy
President Nicolas Sarkozy said Friday it was difficult to be optimistic about the chances of France's ambitions to achieve a reform of the global monetary system during its G20 presidency.
"Optimistic? That's really difficult because we are confronted with subjects that are very, very complex," Sarkozy said in response to a question by a journalist before having dinner with his visiting Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao.
