EU wants Greece to stay in eurozone, says Van Rompuy

EU leaders want Greece to remain in the eurozone but to "respect its commitments", European Council President Herman Van Rompuy has said.

Mr Van Rompuy, speaking at an informal EU summit, said continuing "vital reforms" were essential for Greece to overcome its economic problems.

The eurozone crisis has overshadowed the talks, amid fears that Greece may have to exit the single currency.

The eurozone is said to be preparing for such a scenario.
