PARIS (Reuters) - The French and Dutch governments will hold a joint working group on Air France-KLM strategy, the finance ministers of both countries said on Friday, after talks aimed at defusing a row over the Netherlands' surprise acquisition of a stake in the airline group.

Officials from both countries will begin a "work process" on Air France-KLM that will issue joint recommendations by the end of June, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said after a meeting with his Dutch counterpart Wopke Hoekstra in Paris.
