ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras ruled out an early election on Friday, following the resignation of his foreign minister this week.

Tsipras, who will take over the foreign ministry portfolio, said that his left-led coalition government enjoys the full support of the parliament's majority.

Speaking to reporters in Brussels he said he would keep the foreign minister's post until a deal with neighbouring Macedonia to end a decades-old dispute over the ex-Yugoslav republic's name was successfully concluded.
