BEIJING - China wants to see Greece stay in the eurozone, a foreign ministry spokeswoman said on Monday.

"With the Greece debt problem in a critical period, China hopes to see that Greece will stay in the eurozone," spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a daily news briefing.

Hua said China always supports European integration and looks forward to a stable, unified and prosperous European Union.

"[We] believe that the members of the eurozone are able and wise enough to solve the debt problem appropriately," she added.

Months of bailout talks between the Greek government and its creditors broke down Saturday over the reforms demanded by creditors. Eurogroup financial ministers rejected Greece's request for an extension so that it could put the creditors' proposals to a popular vote on July 5 and said any financial support to Greece will end on June 30 as agreed in February.
