French President Sarkozy and Germany’s Chancellor Merkel pressed Greece to honour its austerity plans in return for further funds, they also stated that Greece will remain an `integral’ part of the single currency area.

This pledge of unity was enough for the Euro to stabilise for the time being. Despite these comments, some economists still fear Greece will default and withdraw from the common currency.
