France's Hollande welcomes growth focus of G20 summit

ST PETERSBURG (Reuters) - French President Francois Hollande welcomed a joint call by G20 leaders at a summit on Friday to increase the momentum of the global recovery.

"We have tangible results on growth and jobs," Hollande, who over the past year has led a campaign within the euro zone against fiscal austerity, told a news conference after the summit in the Russian city of St. Petersburg.
