Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann says he sees a chance of an agreement with Greece after the country submitted reform proposals to creditors.

Faymann said in a statement that "constructive forces must now be stronger that those who don't want a solution under any circumstances."

He didn't specify who exactly he meant.

Faymann says it must not be forgotten that the crisis in Greece is affecting its poorest people – "so it is our obligation to use this last opportunity constructively." [AP]
