Greek finance chief chides IMF for delaying bailout deal
Greece's finance head lambasted the International Monetary Fund for wasting its time on internal disaccords, saying it defers a decision on their third rescue agreement.
Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos urged the global institution to decide on its participation in the country's ?86 billion ($91 billion) bailout package as he reiterated the latter's demands were anchored on wrong figures.
IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde previously warned Greece won't secure a special sweet accord as she implied the international organization won't withdraw its demands for reforming pension and tax policies.
She said the IMF needs to apply the principles which they apply to all nations since they lend money to the international community. It is determined to avoid repeating events which led to the country's first and second rescue deals.
