France will respect EU budget rules -Le Maire

BRUSSELS, July 10 (Reuters) - French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Monday France will respect European Union budget rules and will also push for economic reforms, starting with labour laws.

"France will respect its European budget commitments," Le Maire told reporters on his arrival to a regular meeting of euro zone finance ministers in Brussels.

He said the French government will push for the country's "economic transformation," including the reform of labour laws. The structural changes will help meet budget targets, he said. (Reporting by Francesco Guarascio zfraguarascio, editing by Robin Emmott)
