[BRUSSELS] The EU said on Monday its sole aim for Greece is to keep the twice-bailed out country firmly in the eurozone, as Athens battles hostile financial markets spooked by the possibility of early elections.

"The only option that the (European) Commission is working for is to keep Greece firmly in the eurozone," a spokeswoman said, amid widespread speculation market turmoil could force cash-strapped Athens out of the single currency bloc.
