My political career is over: Strauss-Kahn
MOSCOW (AFP) - Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn declared in an interview broadcast on Wednesday on Russian television that his political career was over and he was instead working as an economic advisor.
"Politics for me is in the past," Strauss-Kahn, who resigned from the IMF's top job in 2011 after being accused of sexual assault in a New York hotel, told state news channel Rossiya 24 in an interview.
"Today, I am working as an advisor to big companies in numerous countries in all the corners of the world - in Russia, Africa and Latin America," he added.
"I try my best to fulfil my role and give the most accurate advice possible," he said in the interview, which was conducted in French but dubbed into Russian.
