Sarkozy Dismisses Links to Pakistan Submarine Deal as ‘Polemic’

French President Nicolas Sarkozy dismissed suggestions that he was linked to possible bribes paid in the 1990s to sell submarines to Pakistan.

“It’s just a polemic that people are trying to stick to me,” Sarkozy said at a press conference today during a North Atlantic Treaty Organization summit in Lisbon. “It dishonors the families of the victims. Let the justice system do its work.”
