French FM says pressing Sarkozy over Turkey's EU entry
French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said he was trying to persuade President Nicholas Sarkozy to drop his opposition to Turkey's accession to the European Union.

"I believe that Mr. President needs to change his mind about Turkey and I have a part to play in this," Kouchner told an interview on a French radio.

"He maintains his position over Turkey but he also knows that I have not changed my mind on the issue," Kouchner said.

Kouchner also said that he would visit Turkey early October.
