"...we are all working for something important. What is at stake here is war and peace, and our responsibility, our common responsibility of everyone in the Security Council is involved. And we are willing to try to give peace a chance. "
French Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin in a press conference following U.N. weapons inspector's report to the Security Council, February 14, 2003

"The efforts of the present French Government, continuing those of all its predecessors, have been directed with unswerving sincerity towards the maintenance and the organization of peace...I have no doubt that this joint declaration will bring to the cause of general appeasement a contribution the value of which will be confirmed in the future."
French Foreign Minister Georges Bonnet in a communique announcing the Franco-German non-aggression pact, December 6, 1938
------------------------------
UPDATE. The value of the latter contribution to the cause of general appeasement was confirmed by the Franco-German Armistice of June 25, 1940:

In the occupied parts of France the German Reich exercises all rights of an occupying power. The French Government obligates itself to support with every means the regulations resulting from the exercise of these rights and to carry them out with the aid of French administration.
