BERLIN, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- German and French leaders urged Greece to keep its commitment of reform here on Thursday.

"For me, it's important that we all fulfill our responsibilities," said German Chancellor Angela Merkel told a brief news conference before a dinner meeting with visiting French President Francois Hollande in the evening.

"I will encourage Greece to remain on the course of reform," said the chancellor.

Standing alongside with Merkel, Hollande said he wanted Greece to stay in the eurozone, but "we must now implement what have been decided. Greece must make necessary efforts in order to achieve that goal."

During the press conference, Merkel reiterated that decisions concerning Greece would not be made until the troika of European Central Bank (ECB), European Commission and International Monetary Fund (IMF) give their report next month.
