URGENT ¥¥¥ Hollande 'won't agree' EU budget that abandons farming, growth

French President Francois Hollande arrived for tough EU budget talks with his counterparts Thursday saying he would not agree to a budget that "abandons farming and ignores growth."

"I have come to seek an agreement -- but only if possible," he said. "Should some be unreasonable I will try to reason with them, but only up to a point."
