Medvedev Gives Thanks to Sarkozy

Just got this bit of news from AP:

Medvedev wrote Saturday to French President Nicolas Sarkozy — who, holding the EU presidency at the time, authored an Aug. 12 peace plan — to thank him for the “big role” he played in ending the hostilities.

Medvedev wrote that the cease-fire agreement “remains the only code of behavior” in the region and that Russia has fulfilled its obligations under it.

I hate to be stickler for details, but Russia has most certainly has not fulfilled the terms of the Sarkozy-brokered truce, which required a retreat to pre-war positions on both sides.
