The IMF is dragging its heels. The Fund’s managing director, Christine Lagarde, said that she expects eurozone lenders to be “far more specific” in their commitment to a debt-relief package for Greece.
Quoted by Keep Talking Greece, she said:
“We will carry on working on this debt relief package.In other words, the Quadriga and Greece are still nowhere near a deal.
There is not enough clarity yet but I hope that the European partners will continue to progress in that.
We have two issues, policies which are being voted on now, I hope, by the Greek authorities. Much progress has been made and we certainly hope that the Europeans will be far more specific in terms of debt relief, which is also an imperative.”
No surprises there then!
