A bunch of countries just agreed to dramatically reduce Iraq’s debt. The deal “represented a considerable concession from France.”

That’s a big win for the U.S. on the diplomacy front. A blow for those who say the Bush administration can’t get along with other nations.

It’ll be interesting to see how the major papers play this story on Monday.

UPDATE: OK, I was wrong. The New York Times did indeed lead with the story. They don’t dwell on the France aspect, but they do color the agreement as a major foreign policy coup for the White House. Oddly, none of the other major newspapers (USA Today, LA Times, Washington Post) devote more than a wire story to the news. (That info, courtesy of Slate’s daily newspaper roundup, a great feature.)
