CAMP DAVID, Md. — President Barack Obama says there's an "emerging consensus" that more must be done to promote jobs growth in Europe as the continent faces a daunting debt crisis.
Obama told reporters at the end of the G-8 meeting Saturday at Camp David in Maryland that he and leaders of seven other major industrial nations agree that "growth and jobs must be our top priority" and a stable, growing European economy is in everyone's best interest.
Obama says the world leaders made progress on a number of international issues, including Iran, Syria and North Korea.
Addressing shaky oil markets, the leaders set the stage for a broad release of national oil reserves to address any disruption in the world markets when tough new sanctions kick in on Iran's oil exports.
