France will meet fiscal pledges at own pace, Hollande says

PARIS (Reuters) - France will abide by its budget commitments but will do so at its own pace, President Francois Hollande said on Tuesday after the head of the Eurogroup said there were no exceptions for large countries and France must meet EU budget targets.

"France always meets its commitments ... and it will do so in the coming months and years," Hollande said when asked about France's commitment to bring its public deficit under the EU cap of 3 percent of GDP in 2017.
