France fears war over Georgia

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner has condemned Russia's actions in Georgia and accused Russia of breaking international law by recognizing the Georgian territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent states.
Questioned about a statement by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that Russia was not afraid of a new Cold War, Kouchner stated: “If it's only cold, that's not a problem, if it's hot, we don't want it”.
