Greeks must vote for euro membership, France foreign minister says

If Greeks want to keep the country in the euro area, they will have to show this with their vote, France’s Foreign Minister said on Monday.

“If [Greeks] want to stay in the euro — and I think a majority of them want that — they cannot vote for parties that eventually make them exit from the eurozone,» Laurent Fabius was quoted by Dow Jones as telling French radio Europe1.

“What’s at stake is whether Greeks stay in euro or not. They cannot at the same time want to stay and not make any effort,» Fabius said according to Dow Jones.

Greeks vote again on June 17.
