Van Rompuy says EU wants Greece in eurozone

European Council President Herman Van Rompuy has said that EU leaders want Greece to remain in the eurozone.

Mr Van Rompuy, speaking at an informal EU summit, said continuing "vital reforms" were essential for Greece to overcome its economic problems and that the country must "respect its commitments".

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