Havel: Sarkozy speaks faster than he thinks

Former Czech President Václav Havel told the Italian paper La Stampa on Saturday that French President Nicolas Sarkozy “had a tendency to speak faster than he thinks”. In the interview, Mr Havel was reacting to Nicolas Sarkozy’s remarks about a planned US anti-missile defence shield in Central Europe. The French President said that the defence system would not enhance Europe’s security. The former Czech president Václav Havel also said that Mr Sarkozy reminded him of Edouard Daladier, the French prime minister who signed the Munich Agreement in September 1938.
