Conditions not met for warships delivery to Russia: French PM

The Vladivostok -- a Mistral-class helicopter gunship -- at the STX France shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, western France, on March 5, 2014French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Thursday that conditions have not yet been met for France to deliver two Mistral-class warships to Russia. “Today the conditions have not been met for their (warships) delivery to Russia,” Valls told reporters in the Serbian capital. Paris has been facing mounting pressure to scrap the 1.2 billion euro ($1.5 billion) deal with Moscow over Russia’s role in the Ukrainian crisis. As a deadline for the controversial delivery of the first ship to Russia nears, France faces a gruelling dilemma: ditch the deal, lose billions and antagonise Moscow — or go ahead and attract NATO’s wrath.
