The International Monetary Fund “will discuss recent developments” in Greece when a planned review mission returns to Athens, a spokeswoman for the IMF said today.
After an inconclusive May 6 election that led to the June 17 vote, European and IMF budget experts canceled a mission to review Greece’s eligibility for the next aid installment and now intend to carry out the assessment around the end of June. That plan assumes a new Greek government is in place by then.
“We will discuss recent developments when the mission returns and then go from there,” IMF spokeswoman Conny Lotze said by e-mail in response to e-mailed questions. Lotze said she didn’t have a date for the mission.
Lotze later said she was referring to when the mission goes to Athens, rather than when it returns to IMF headquarters in Washington from Greece.
