PARIS (Reuters) - The ECB's decision to end its waiver on credit requirements for Greek bonds puts the onus on governments to hammer a deal on the Greek debt crisis, French President Francois Hollande said on Thursday, adding that this was a legitimate move.

It is up to governments, and in particular the Eurogroup meetings of euro zone finance ministers, to make decisions, Hollande told a news conference.

The ECB decision "also tells the Greek government that it must announce a framework for reforms," he said.
