Sharjah Ruler added; "De Gaulle asked the minister of culture on how he can earn Arabs friendship who he glorified?

De Gaulle asked: How can I earn friendship of the Arab leader Gamal Abdel Nasser?He replied: You have to give Algeria its independence. Then De Gaulle said, meaning Algeria: "Now I known them".
