Sarkozy said in an interview with Xinhua in Paris on Friday that he would like to work together with Chinese President Hu Jintao on many topics of mutual concern like the environment, economic and trade relations and how France and China can make bigger contributions to the world's security.

He also called for the strengthening of China-European Union ties.
