France weighs Olympic ceremony boycott
AP[Tuesday, March 18, 2008 19:03]
PARIS, March 18 — France's Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner says the European Union should consider boycotting the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics if violence continues in Tibet.

The head of the European parliament and media watchdog Reporters Without Borders called Tuesday for an opening ceremony boycott. Kouchner said the proposal is "interesting."

Kouchner told reporters in Paris on Tuesday that the idea should be considered by EU foreign ministers at a meeting this month.

He insisted that France had no plans to boycott the entire Olympic Games, saying that would not be "just."
