LONDON (Reuters) - Standard & Poor's central forecast is that Greece will still be in the euro and the European Union at the end of 2015, although even a late deal to stave off default will not resolve its problems, chief rating officer Moritz Kraemer said on Tuesday.

"Our base case is they will be in both," Kraemer told a financial seminar in London.
