FRENCH President Nicolas Sarkozy says he has sent a congratulatory message to Barack Obama ahead of his inauguration as US President and that he was keen for him to start changing the world.
“We are eager for him to get to work so that with him we can change the world,” he said.
French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said earlier that he “shared the admiration and emotion of the whole world” for Obama. But he added: “I think we should not expect him to immediately solve all America’s problems, nor ours. Barack Obama does not have a magic wand.”
