Rome, May 16 - Italy will not try to team up with
France against Germany to wrest control of European policy from
Berlin, Premier Enrico Letta said Thursday.
Letta said he "fully agreed" with French President Francois
Hollande that all countries should try to work together to "make
the right choices".
Italy and France are trying to get German Chancellor Angela
Merkel to ease austerity policies and make moves to stoke growth
and create jobs, especially for young people.
Germany has been hoping struggling EU members will make the
structural reforms Berlin achieved a decade ago to boost growth
while avoiding deficit spending.
On Thursday Letta stressed that the two policy areas were
not incompatible.
"Budget discipline is the condition for implementing growth
policies, and (policies) for young people," he said,
acknowledging that Italy had in the past racked up "too much
debt".
"My generation has learned how much damage can be done when
you solve today's problems using tomorrow's resources," he said
after talks with Polish Premier Donald Tusk in Warsaw.
Letta called youth unemployment "a nightmare for all
European leaders".
