yet on board. Changes dateline.)
NICOSIA May 10 It looks like the International
Monetary Fund (IMF) will take part in the financing of Greece's
third bailout, Slovakia's finance minister Peter Kazimir said at
the EBRD's annual meeting in Nicosia on Wednesday.
"It seems to me that yes, finally (the IMF will provide
funding to Greece)... then we have to congratulate (IMF chief)
Christine Lagarde that she managed to convince the IMF," he
"This amount is not important, (but) it is really symbolic.
Technically the IMF must be on board," he added.
The euro zone has always said it would only consider debt
relief for Greece after 2018, Kazimir said.
