France will build at least two high-tech helicopter carriers for the Russian navy, President Nicolas Sarkozy announced Friday, on a visit to a western shipyard.

France and Russia have been in talks for Moscow to buy up to four Mistral-class vessels, despite concerns among Paris' NATO allies over the transfer of western naval technology to their former Cold War foe.
