VIENNA (Reuters) - Europe must find a way to keep Greece in the euro zone while holding Athens to its commitments under an international bailout, Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann said on Monday after meeting Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

“The question is finding a solution between the content of the framework agreed in the past and the efforts of the new (Greek) government. That is not the case at the moment and that is why a certain concern has to be expressed that this path has to be found,” Faymann told a joint news conference with Tsipras after more than an hour of talks in Vienna.
