Brussels, May 15 - Italy and France would be better
served by working together with Germany, rather than by teaming
up against the economic powerhouse, French President Francois
Hollande said Wednesday.
In fact, conflict with Germany "would be against the
interests of Europe and Italy and France," Hollande said after a
meeting with European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso.
"We can work together in a constructive spirit in the
interest of Europe," said Hollande.
Many critics have complained that Germany's emphasis on
austerity, and its power to enforce that, within the European
Union has seriously damaged other smaller economies.
Some, such as Italy's ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, have
made a habit of directly attacking Germany and its policies.
Hollande noted that Italy and France are both dealing with
several similar economic issues - particularly, high youth
unemployment.
But, he added, both countries would want to "honour the
commitments" that their governments have made with the rest of
the EU on fiscal matters.
