President Barack Obama says there is an emerging consensus that more must be done to promote growth in the eurozone and to boost confidence.

His comments came as the G8 conference closed at Camp David in Maryland. The conflict in Syria and Iran were also on the agenda with the world leaders

“Growth and jobs must be our top priority, a stable growing European economy is in everybody’s best interests – including America’s” said President Obama.

US President also announced what he called a New Alliance after discussions with African leaders on food security. Now the focus will switch to the president’s home city of Chicago and a NATO summit with the future security in Afghanistan on the agenda.
