Merkel says she wants Greece to stay in the euro zone

BERLIN/LONDON (Reuters) – Germany’s Angela Merkel played down the chances of a Greek exit from the euro zone on Wednesday, but made clear she expected Athens to stick to the terms of its international bailouts after this month’s election.

The chancellor addressed the issue for the first time since a German magazine said at the weekend her government had shifted its stance and was ready to accept a “Grexit” if Athens failed to meet its commitments under EU/IMF rescue packages totalling 240 billion euros.
