NICOSIA, March 29 (Reuters) - Cyprus has no intention of leaving the European single currency, the island's president said on Friday, assuring Cypriots that the situation was 'contained' in the wake of a tough bailout deal with the European Union.
'We have no intention of leaving the euro,' President Nicos Anastasiades told a conference in Nicosia. 'In no way will we experiment with the future of our country,' he said.
