France and Britain sign treaties on defence cooperation
The leaders of Britain and France signed two treaties in London on Tuesday on closer military cooperation, including the shared use of nuclear testing facilities.
British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy put their signatures to the far-reaching agreements, which will commit French and British forces to operating together in the future, DPA reported.
"This is not about a European army, or a shared nuclear deterrence," said Cameron. "Britain and France will remain sovereign nations."
