VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria will not help Lufthansa <LHAG.DE> and its Austrian Airlines operation without receiving something in exchange and is looking to secure jobs within its borders, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said shortly before a meeting with the German group's chief executive.

"We have very clear interests in Austria - that is Austria as a place to do business and jobs in Austria. We will begin talks on that, but we will certainly not provide measures to support a German company without getting an advantage out of it as a republic," Kurz told a news conference.
