[LONDON] British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday he thought it would be hard for Greece to stay in the single currency if Greeks voted to reject a deal from international creditors in a forthcoming referendum.

"If they vote no I find it hard to see how that is consistent with staying in the euro because there would be, I think, a very significant problem. But it's for the Greek people to decide," Mr Cameron told BBC radio.

He said he wanted to see a deal struck between Athens and the EU for the sake of stability, saying the crisis showed the need for the bloc to be more flexible.
