The issues of jobs and growth have dominated EU talks in Brussels, amid mass protests in the Belgian capital.
France, Italy and some other countries pushed for growth-friendly spending to tackle the problems, while Germany advocated strict austerity measures.
Thousands of protesters rallied outside the summit venue, saying government spending cuts were hitting jobs.
