PRAGUE, June 26 (Reuters) - The Czech central bank said on Thursday it would maintain its policy of intervention in foreign exchange markets at least until the second quarter of 2015, and that it did not rule out a further move to keep the crown weak.

After leaving interest rates unchanged at near zero at a regular policy meeting, the bank said risks to its forecasts were anti-inflationary, increasing the need to keep the intervention policy in place.
