France and Germany target jobless youth

French President Hollande proposes tackling Eurozone crisis by calling for "new deal" with Germany.

    Youth unemployment continues to plague the Eurozone with nearly one in four young people currently out of work.

    It has prompted leaders from France and Germany to join forces and launch what they call 'battle for jobs'.

    French President Francois Hollande said that in any battle, time is of the essence, and called for a “New Deal” with Germany to tackle the crisis.

    He announced that all 27 EU employment ministers will meet in Berlin in July to discuss the topic.
