  • [01] IMF head says Greek situation 'serious'

    WASHINGTON (ANA-MPA/ T. Ellis) - International Monetary Fund general director Dominique Strauss-Kahn, replying to a question by the ANA-MPA, assessed that the state of the Greek economy is serious and efforts are required from the country's government and people to tackle it.

    Speaking during a press conference given in the framework of the start of the IMF and World Bank's spring conference, Kahn said that "until now we have not participated in negotiations, we merely offered technical support," while discussions with the Greek government have started.

    "It is clear that the situation in Greece is a very serious one, both from the view of Greece's macroeconomic stability, for the government of Greece, as well as a very serious situation for the Greek people," Kahn said.
