The French President has insisted that neither his government, nor the EU, paid any money to Libya to secure the release of the six Bulgarian medics. Nicolas Sarkozy says France’s involvement was limited to humanitarian action. “I would like to make it clear that Europe, and France, only worked in a humanitarian and political capacity, and it was left at that. Tomorrow, along with my foreign minister, Bernard Kouchner, I will go to Libya to help it reintegrate into the international community,” said Sarkozy. The chief of diplomacy in Libya, Abdelrahman Chalgham, said both France and the EU had contributed to the foundation set up to pay compensation to the Libyan victims of the tragedy.
