European nations involved in the A400M military transporter plane project have agreed to continue talks on Europe's costliest defence project, a German Defence Ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.

The A400M has been plagued by cost overruns that could affect thousands of jobs.

The spokesman said that the countries wanted to find a solution as soon as possible. Talks between the plane's manufacturer, Airbus, and officials from seven purchasing NATO nations adjourned on Tuesday evening without any result. (Writing by Paul Carrel)
