PARIS, France - According to sources close to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, a landmark agreement to repay Haiti reparations is near completion. The treaty will require France to pay Haiti 10 billion Euros and send soccer player, Thierry Henry, to the poor Caribbean country.
"We believe this historic arrangement will settle all reparations issues. Not only will we pay the huge sum, we will also sweeten the deal by giving Haiti the world's greatest striker, Thierry Henry," said Sarkozy. "With Thierry's help, Haiti will surely qualify for the 2014 World Cup."
Haitian officials swiftly rejected the deal saying that the proposal is a low-ball offer.
"This offer is completely unacceptable. First of all, the amount owed is roughly 17 billion Euros," argued Haiti's President Rene Preval. "Second of all, Thierry is well past his prime."
