"They won't be speaking French"

In a sign of how much has changed, Mr Faure says he is concerned that when he attends this weekend's 50th anniversary celebrations in Berlin he may not understand what is being said. "They won't be speaking French," he says. "When we were preparing the Treaty of Rome, we only spoke French."
