France will keep pushing for a deal between Athens and the rest of the euro zone before Greece's referendum, France's finance minister said, hours before finance ministers from the region hold their second conference call on the crisis in two days.Asked if Germany's tough stance was making it more complicated to find a deal, Sapin said the toughest stance did not come from Germany but from small EU countries which had gone through painful reforms and whose standard of living was lower than Greece's.He said that a no vote in Greece would risk causing a Greek exit from the euro zone but added that the door would still not be closed.
