BRUSSELS — French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Friday said he will sign a bill raising France's retirement age to 62 despite the massive protests and strikes it has sparked.

French parliament has passed the bill, which is now set to go before a council that will rule on whether it is constitutional. Sarkozy says he will then sign it.

Sarkozy also said at a European Union summit Friday in Brussels that some people's concerns about the legislation are "legitimate." He says he will address those fears, without elaborating.
