Obama to broach youth unemployment at G8, sources say

Lough Erne, June 17 - US President Barack Obama intends to discuss unemployment, especially as it affects young people, in a speech at the G8 summit in Northern Ireland this week, according to Italian sources there Monday. The sources said that Italian Premier Enrico Letta went over the rising rate of joblessness in a tete-a-tete with Obama earlier in the day. Letta has made fixing youth unemployment a keystone of his premiership, pushing the issue at several EU meetings since he assumed the head of the government in April. Leaders from the world's eight biggest economies this week are also scheduled to tackle economic growth and fighting tax evasion, while Syria's conflict is set to dominate the gathering.
