BRIZE NORTON, England: French President Francois Hollande said on Friday that France did not consider revision of the EU treaties - something British Prime Minister David Cameron is pressing for - a matter of urgency.

"For us it is not a priority," the French Socialist leader told a news conference after talks with Cameron, who was at Hollande's side and for his part repeated his plan to call a referendum on Britain's place in the European Union by 2017.
